Graduate Follow-Up Report, 1994-95.
Wisconsin State Board of Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education, Madison.
Each year, a follow-up study is conducted to gather data on the activities and perceptions of students approximately 6 months after their graduation from Wisconsin's Technical Colleges (WTC). Specifically, the survey seeks to identify the current activities of the WTC graduates, determine the extent to which current activities are related to the graduates' educational programs, and provide data to inform career awareness and planning efforts. In 1995, the 16 colleges in the WTC system surveyed 15,560 graduates from 1994-95. Responses were received from 12,790 (82%) graduates and were compiled into a statewide report. Results of the study included the following: (1) 59.6% of all graduates were female, while minorities represented 7.6%; (2) of the respondents in the labor force, 94% were employed and 81% of those graduates were in jobs related to their training; (3) graduates of the home economics programs had the highest rate of related employment at 87%; (4) the median monthly salary for all 1994-95 graduates was $1,608; and (5) graduates from the service instructional division had the highest median monthly salary at $1,907. Includes a detailed table of statewide results by program title, the survey instrument, and a map of WTC districts with college addresses. (TGI)
