Rutgers, The State Univ., New Brunswick, NJ. Dept. of Vocational-Technical Education.
As part of a 5-year state-coordinated plan for building research and evaluation into the local vocational programs, a state-wide administrators' workshop was held to consider conditions and practices in educational operations which inhibit the use of research findings, and to develop guidelines for minimizing the effect of deterrents to local implementation of research and evaluation in vocational education. The 50 local and national participants of this 4-day workshop heard presentations on: (1) "Research and Evaluation in Local Schools" by Gordon Law, (2) "Priorities for Research and Evaluation" by Robert Worthington, (3) "Federal-State Guidelines for Vocational Education" by Charles O'Connor, (4) "How a County Superintendent of Vocational Education Views Research and Evaluation" by Robert Toft, (5) "Evaluation Supported by Research" by Po Yen Koo, and (6) "Research and Development in Industry" by Pecka and Landauer. Products of the presentations and discussion sessions include (1) Deterrents to Research and Evaluation, (2) Guidelines for Minimizing Deterrents, (3) Guidelines for Building Research and Evaluation into Local Practice, and (4) Guidelines for Specific Action in Home School Districts.
