The objective of the project was to provide the guidelines and format for a procedure that could be used for assessing the placement and followup of vocational graduates. A model for obtaining accurate feedback as to the kinds of success graduates are having in the world of work was developed. The survey instrument used for collecting data was field tested at three different settings within the State of Indiana. A computer program was written for retrieving the data in a meaningful format. A total of 536 graduates in 29 career division programs were surveyed. The survey provided information on the number of occupational graduates that had secured employment, the number employed, number continuing their education, number who could not be located, and a salary range for those graduates that were employed.
