Wisconsin Univ. - Stout, Menomonie. Center for Vocational, Technical and Adult Education.; Wisconsin State Board of Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education, Madison. Research Coordinating Unit.
The purpose of the survey was to validate a list of seven goals for a vocational education professional development system. Objectives were to ascertain perceptions of the degree of importance, extent of achievement, and responsibilities for accomplishing the goals. The goals are: staff educational needs, staff supply and demand, efficiency of system, geographic availability, flexibility of programs, effectiveness of system, and certification of personnel. These goals were incorporated into a four-part questionnaire: (1) to identify respondents by type of agency or institution and their area in vocational education, and their perception as to the (2) degree of importance, (3) extent of achievement, and (4) agency responsibilities for achieving each goal. A five-point Likert-Type scale was incorporated into the questionnaire sent to 160 subjects with a 68.8 percent rate of return. Tables and discussions are presented based on the findings drawn from the data. It was concluded that all goals but "certification of personnel" ranked as "High Importance--Goal Greatly Needed.""Certification of personnel" was viewed as a goal of "Average Importance--Goal Needed but not Essential." Recommendations and comments from the survey are included as well as a copy of the questionnaire used for the survey. (Author/EC)
