Guidelines for Community Occupational Surveys in Vocational Education.
Collins, Rebecca Irene
This study was conducted to develop a set of guidelines for making community occupational surveys and to examine the extent to which recent surveys conformed to these guidelines. A total of 42 guidelines were developed from literature pertaining to purposes, objectives, procedures, and techniques for planning, conducting, and reporting surveys. Of the 42 guidelines, 21 related to planning and organizing the survey, 9 related to collecting, analyzing and interpreting the survey data, and 11 related to writing, duplicating, and distributing the survey report. To determine how current practices conformed to the 42 guidelines, 20 community occupational survey reports written between 1960-1972 were selected and analyzed. Findings revealed that the survey technique has become accepted by almost all communities as a practice essential to vocational guidance, evaluation, and long-range program planning. In the 20 survey reports, the application of the 42 guidelines varied in both number and degree of utilization. Eleven guidelines were reported as being followed in all 20 of the surveys. According to the data, 15 was the least number of guidelines used and 34 was the most used, while the average number was approximately 23. (Author/SB)
