Identification of Most Successful Educational Programs and Their Characteristics.
Dagenais, F.
Most successful vocational education programs are identified in 16 community colleges through the use of the Delphi method. The design provided for a reliability check on the Delphi technique through the use of two independent Delphi panels on each campus. Hard data on 36 "most successful" and 36 "other" programs on 12 campuses were analyzed as a further check on the panel results. The reliability of Delphi panels was established. Discriminant analysis correctly classified an impressive number of the programs identified by the Delphi technique. The identifying characteristics of successful programs span the area of student, curriculum, instructional, administration, and advisory committee. The educational use of the Delphi method is discussed. (Author)
