Individual Demand for Vocational Education: Structure and Determination.
Copa, George; And Others
The objectives of this study were to: (1) develop a rationale and structure for quantifying individual demands of people for vocational education, (2) demonstrate a method of quantifying these demands, and (3) develop a set of guidelines for administratores at State and local levels for determining individual demand for vocational education. Alternative data collection procedures were developed and tested on a pilot basis. The design for the pilot tests is presented in detail, including the area chosen, statistical population, sampling procedures, questions to be asked, and how the questions were to be asked. Results of the pilot test allowed conclusions about the validity and reliability of the data as well as the effectiveness of the procedures. On the basis of the conclusions from the test, recommendations are presented in the form of a guide for use by local education agencies or State departments of education in conducting a determination of individual demand for vocational education.
