Review and Synthesis of Research in Technical Education. Second Edition. Research Series No. 47.
Phillips, Donald S.; Briggs, Lloyd D.
This document provides an analysis and synthesis of some of the research in technical education since August 1966, and in some instances includes articles published prior to 1966 which were judged to be significant for showing trends or making comparisons. An overview of research is provided in the following areas: (1) Philosophy, (2) Manpower Needs, (3) Educational Programs, (4) Curriculum, (5) Student Personnel Services, (6) Evaluation, (7) Administration and Supervision, (8) Teacher Education, (9) Learning Processes and Teaching Methods, (10) Instructional Materials and Devices, (11) Facilities, and (12) Research. It was concluded that: (1) In general, much of the reported research suffers from deficiencies in design and methodology, (2) Descriptive research studies have limited value beyond the situation in which they were conducted, (3) Limited information was available about development and validation of questionnaires and opinionaires when used, (4) Research studies dealt with small segments of large problems and tended to be terminal in nature, and (5) The amount of significant research in technical education is still quite limited. An extensive bibliography of the reviewed literature is appended. The first review of this subject covering period prior to 1966 is available as ED 011 559. (GR)
