The Coordination of Program Planning and Evaluation Systems for Occupational Education. Volume 2: A Targeting System for Occupational Education.
Riverside Research Inst., New York, NY.
The second volume of the final report deals with the targeting system--one of a hierarchy of systems required to support the effective delivery of superior occupational education. It determines that program objectives match student training in occupations, that the best choice of occupations in which to train students has been made, and that the number and variety of programs in various regions fit those regions' needs. The elements of a targeting system for occupational education are: a body of information from which job market conditions and the effectiveness of occupational education can be determined, together with the processes required to utilize this information and make decisions. Topics covered in the report are: design considerations for a regional targeting system (information elements and design concepts, identifying service regions, assessing present and future regional manpower requirements, measuring system effectiveness, measuring the effects of population mobility), a proposed regional targeting system (design approach, an overview, information sources and software requirements, targeting system information outputs, using information outputs for first-level targeting decisions, further system design tasks), and other applications of the targeting system. A discussion of existing methods of assessing present and future regional manpower requirements is appended. (SA)
