Development of a Convergence Plan for Vocational Education in Wisconsin. Final Report.
To determine if the Convergence Planning Technique, designed to identify research components and organize them in a logical manner on a matrix for analysis, could be applied to vocational education problems in Wisconsin, questionnaires composed of problems identified through literature reviews and interviews were distributed to vocational, technical and adult education administrators and board members and the project's steering committee. Data obtained were used in the construction of a matrix which when analyzed revealed five phases necessary to constitute a suitable research design. These phases are: (1) identification and analysis of needs, (2) development of systems designs, (3) specified sub-systems research, (4) procedures for integrating sub-systems with the existing system, and (5) evaluation. It was concluded that the Convergence Technique could be employed in vocational research planning. (SN)
