Annual Report on State Research Coordinating Unit Activities for Fiscal Year 1970.
Bureau of Adult, Vocational, and Technical Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
During fiscal year 1970, the states received $1.1 million for research under Section 131(b) of Part C of the Vocational Education Amendment. This amount was sufficient for states to keep their Research Coordinating Units (RCU's) functioning, but provided very little for new research. The main activities of the RCU's were to disseminate results of research, answer inquiries, assist in the use of ERIC materials, assist in the preparation of proposals, assist in state program planning and development, and conduct research studies when monies were available. Evaluation studies were conducted by 13 RCU's. Thirteen states reported studies for the implementation of guidance systems or curriculum development, and 10 states reported research projects directed at problems of the disadvantaged and handicapped. Seminars and educational personnel development were frequently noted as research-related activities. This document contains summaries of quarterly reports from all 50 states. (GEB)
