Guidelines for Conducting Periodic Follow-Up Studies in the VTAE System.
Wisconsin State Board of Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education, Madison.
Followup is a process by which an educational institution seeks to determine how effectively it is meeting the current and future needs of those it serves. Various research, administrative and student personnel at district and state levels helped develop these guidelines, which are intended to give assistance to vocational, technical, and adult education districts in conducting followup studies of applicants and former students by providing sets of instruments, procedures for using them, recommendations for preparing reports, and suggestions for implementing the findings. Material in this guide is divided into sections covering: (1) Conceptual Framework, (2) Principles of Followup Studies, (3) Administration, (4) Drop-Out Followup Study, (5) Six Months Followup Study, (6) Two and One-Half Year Followup Study, (7) Five and One-Half Year Followup Study, (8) Ten and One-Half Followup Study, (9) Special Optional Followup Study, and (10) Summary. Mention is also made of certain administrative concerns and costs of doing such a study. (JS)
