Principles for Vocational Education--Validation of Statements of Beliefs Selected from the Literature and Research.
Keller, Louise Jean
This study was undertaken to determine a set of belief statements that, when validated, would serve as principles for vocational education. The instrument selected was a modified version of the Q-sort technique, referred to as a card-sort. The final instrument included 91 statements of belief selected from the literature, and was validated through the responses of State Supervisors from the United States Office of Education's Region VIII. The responses were analyzed as to nine categories of statements: (1) Curriculum, (2) Definitions, (3) Evaluation, (4) Guidance, (5) Leadership, (6) Organization and Administration, (7) People Served, (8) Teacher Education, and (9) Trends. The conclusion can be drawn that there are identifiable beliefs on which a specific reference group can agree. Examples of these include: (1) Curriculum content is based on occupational analyses, (2) Programs are built around people, and (3) Follow-up studies of graduates and drop-outs are evaluative tools for program effectiveness.
