Summary, Evaluation and Long-Range Plans for Related Work. Final Report, No. 30.
This document is a summary and evaluation of a 3-year interdisciplinary, interagency effort to improve vocational education. Twenty-nine component reports are summarized and interpreted with resumes in four interrelated efforts: (1) Identification of socioeconomic factors that affect pupil's occupational and educational aspirations, expectations and plans, (2) Identification of clusters of capabilities (concepts, knowledge, skills and attitudes) that are widely useful in occupations providing opportunities for youth who do not complete college, (3) Development and pilot testing of semi-self-instructional systems designed to help pupils acquire levels of cognitive and motor capabilities defined as adequate for effective work, and (4) Experimental organization of U.S. Navy training aids for use in civilian vocational education programs. Plans for continuation of related work are summarized. (MM)
