Evaluation of a Series of Conferences to Disseminate Research Results on Vocational Choice. Final Report.
This report presents the results of a dissemination project, the objectives of which were: (1) to conduct a set of conferences at several predominantly Negro colleges for the reporting of research results from a study in which these schools had previously participated, (2) to evaluate the effectiveness of these conferences with respect to obtaining full discussion of study results and producing institutional change, and (3) to relate effectiveness of the feedback process to internal characteristics and resources of the institutions, and the nature of external inputs, particularly financial inputs from governmental sources and private foundations. One year following the last feedback conference, the concept of utilization includes requests for further discussion of the study results, further data analysis, research collaboration, and development of new programs.
