Construction of an Instrument for Use in Designing High School Programs of Vocational Education.
Hendrix, William Francis
The purpose of this study was to construct an instrument to be used in the collection and evaluation of data upon which to base decisions regarding the scope and character of vocational programs in individual high schools. Following a review of pertinent literature, a list of categories of information needed was drafted and organized under four divisions: (1) the vocational education needs of the community and goals of its people, (2) student educational objectives, (3) space and equipment availability, and (4) special administrative and instructional needs. After a review of the instrument by a selected jury, it was revised and prepared for use. Pilot schools were then selected and surveys conducted using the instrument. Specific conclusions were that the Vocational Education Act of 1963 has focused more attention by school administrators and school boards upon planning vocational programs, that the instrument can be used effectively, and that it is likely that the device will be more effective if used by professional school personnel.
