Montana Vocational Education Enrollment/Exit/Follow-Up Survey.
Schultz, Adrian J.
This instructional manual for the use of vocational educators in Montana describes a continuing enrollment/exit/follow-up computerized survey of vocational education and provides instructions for its implementation. The survey is intended to make available information which will provide insights for evaluating and improving vocational education programs. The system has been devised to operate as follows. Upon a student's enrollment in a vocationally oriented course of instruction, the school records information on an "entry card" which is transmitted to the Research Coordinating Unit (RCU) where the data is encoded and transferred to magnetic tape storage for subsequent computer use. Any change in information is submitted to the RCU by completion of a "change card." Upon exit of a student, pertinent information is recorded as an "exit card" and transmitted to the RCU. "Follow-up cards" are transmitted to ex-students 6 months, 2 years, and 4 years after their dates of exit and, on return, are transmitted to the RCU. Each 6 months a computer output report is sent to each participating school. An annual report summarizing all general information is compiled and published after the conclusion of each school year.
