To Determine If a Relationship Exists Between Success on the Job and How Students Rate the Overall Cooperative Education Program.
Lomen, Lynn D.; Standen, Robert S.
To determine whether students who indicated success on the job evaluated the overall Cooperative Education Program at Los Angeles Valley College differently from those students who did not indicate job success, data were collected from 249 students who had completed the program (41 percent female and 59 percent male). Questionnaires were answered by the students at the close of each of three semesters. An evaluation form was completed by the students during the final class session of each semester. The data were classified according to ratings of "successful" and "unsuccessful" students and program ratings of "Excellent" or "Needs Improvement." The chi-square technique was used to compare the two groups of "Successful" and "Unsuccessful" students. The findings showed that the students who succeeded on the job rated the Cooperative Education Program "Excellent" more often than did students who had not succeeded. An appendix provides a copy of the questionnaire. (DB)
