Semiannual Report on State Research Coordinating Unit Activities for the Period January 1, 1973-June 30, 1973.
Braaten, Larry; Watson, Frances
The seventh in a series begun in 1970, the report summarizes information received from State Research Coordinating Units (RCU's) regarding research activities conducted under Section 131 (b) of Part C of the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968. Covering the second six months of fiscal year 1973, the purpose of the report is to provide information that will assist States to be aware of research and development conducted by other States, thus facilitating exchange of information and reducing duplication of effort. Organized alphabetically according to States, each individual report includes program directors' names, titles of projects completed, new projects funded, research related activities, and projects and activities still in the planning stage. The report indicates that by the end of the fiscal year 1973, more than 300 new grants and contracts were approved, with approximately 50 percent of the projects relating to career education and development of curricula and instructional material. Titles reported for other studies indicate continued emphasis in the areas of evaluation, administration and planning, including investigations into improving management information systems for followup and data analysis.
