Aggregate Evaluation Report for Secondary Vocational Education in Wisconsin 1987-1991.
Nelson, Orville; And Others
This report presents a summary and synthesis of data from 169 Wisconsin schools, all of which conducted extensive vocational program self-evaluations in 1987-91. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the evaluation project process, including the survey instruments used and a list of participating schools. The next eight chapters review selected data from the aggregate data for these groups: students 1 year and 5 years after graduation and noncompleters; employers of students 1 year and 5 years after graduation; current high school and middle/junior high school students; staff; advisory committees; parents; secondary/postsecondary institutions; and boards of education. Each chapter also provides tables and graphs that display selected information from the composite tables. Chapter 10 provides tables that address each of the six vocational program areas as well as the special needs populations, including handicapped, limited English proficient, and disadvantaged. A concluding chapter summarizes selected data from each of the groups surveyed. Appendixes, amounting to over three-fifths of the report, include the survey instruments used, the aggregate computer tables, a glossary of terms, and a list of acronyms. (YLB)
