A Model for Acquisition and Selection of Career Education Instructional Materials. Final Report.
Magisos, Joel H.
The purpose of this project was to test the effect of an intensive acquisition effort in one region of the nation (Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont); and develop selection criteria, indexing strategies, and abstract formats congruent with user needs. The staff of The Center for Vocational and Technical Education (CVTE) was to develop the initial scope statement on which to base the acquisition of materials for the project. The New England Resource Center for Occupational Education (NERCOE) was subcontracted to develop a mailing list of potential sources of materials and was to create in cooperation with CVTE, acquisition announcements and request letters to 5,600 New England educators and various other sources. Further CVTE was to engage consultants to develop indexing strategies and abstract formats, and to establish a panel who would set up the criteria on which to base material selection for input into the ERIC system. Jointly CVTE and NERCOE were to prepare the required progress, interim, and final reports. The findings presented are based on data collected through (1) tabulation of document numbers, (2) questionnaire and telephone interviews, and (3) selection decision records. The conclusions and recommendations are presented in detail through tabulated charts and in the various materials appended. (Author/BP)
