Development of a Research Instrument Which Can Assess the Occupational and Educational Status of Former Occupational Enrollees of North Carolina Community Colleges and Technical Institutes. Occupational Education Research Project Final Report.
Guilford Technical Inst., Jamestown, NC.
This project was conducted to assess the condition of followup studies throughout the state and to develop an instrument for gathering data relative to the employment and educational status of former students of the community colleges and technical institutes in the North Carolina system. Data-gathering instruments and existing data from the colleges and institutes were examined to determine existing commonalities and central issues. On the basis of this examination, a followup instrument was developed and pilot tested with a sample of 210 former students, which included non-degree, degree, diploma, and certificate students. Data from the pilot study were analyzed, and as a result of the analysis, modifications were made in several questions. It was concluded that the revised instrument accurately reflects the concerns of North Carolina's community colleges and technical institutes and will provide data both for institutional self study and for central long-range planning. The instrument and several project materials are appended. (SB)
