Research Coordinating Unit Program Evaluation. Final Report.
Goldhammer, Keith; And Others
State Research Coordinating Units (RCU) for vocational education are evaluated in this study. Three separate questionnaires were used for RCU directors, State directors of vocational education, and a sample of local and university personnel involved in vocational education. Questionnaire respondents totaled 306, divided in five categories, with response rates in parentheses, as follows: (1) RCU directors, 39 (85%); (2) State directors of vocational education, 36 (72%); (3) university personnel, 67 (82%); (4) university-centered RCU director supervisors, 12 (67%); and (5) local directors of vocational education, 152 (78%). Programs in seven States were studied in depth as case studies of functioning Research Coordinating Units. Findings and recommendations are discussed for strengthening the nationwide RCU program, and a model for the evaluation of similar Federal projects is described. Samples of questionnaires used in the study and response data are appended. (JK)
