A Comparison of Two Methods of Instruction in Office Skills: Classroom-Laboratory and Classroom-Laboratory with Cooperative Work Experience.
Anderson, Barbara Swanson
The purpose of this study was to determine whether cooperative education programs were more effective in teaching clerical skills, in preparing students for office employment, and in helping them to achieve employment and job success than classroom-laboratory training in office skills alone. Two groups totaling 35 students were compared. A significant difference in favor of the Cooperative group was found on the Minnesota Clerical Test. Cooperative students also showed a much higher percentage of employment and higher employment in clerical and office positions. Other measures showed no significant differences. It was concluded that a number of factors were identified which supported the continuation of Cooperative Business Education programs. (Author/SC)
