Iowa Priority Program Areas Requiring Specialized Training of Less Than Baccalaureate Degree.
Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines.
Three components (manpower needs, availability of students, program effectiveness) for priority training area rankings, drawn up by the Priority Training Areas and Priority Programs Ad Hoc Committee of Iowa, supplement the areas list identifying the occupational areas for priority programs. Career education consultants worked with management staff personnel to develop a model establishing methods and procedures for building a rating system for each factor with the use of various data sources as tools for rating. Section 1 of this three-part report introduces the document. Section 2 provides the descriptions and examples of rating techniques for each component. Section 3 discusses ranking procedures; the results of which are updated every year. A five-page table of priority program rankings is provided with the program areas names assigned according to the Office of Education taxonomy structure. Points are allocated according to manpower needs, student availability, and program effectiveness. The appendix contains the career education planning model and lists its components (people needs data, resources data, and determining program effectiveness). (JB)
