McLean, Gary N.
The document presents the final report of a study to measure and compare the satisfaction and satisfactoriness of office employees 18 months after graduation from model office, cooperative office education, and office procedures courses. Differences among the three programs on a number of job- and education-related variables were also investigated. The population for this study consisted of 713 individuals who had graduated from Minnesota public secondary schools in 1973, having completed the three types of programs listed. Information on the graduates included: in-school measures, personal questionnaires, Minnesota satisfaction questionnaire, and the Minnesota satisfactoriness scales for employers. Definitions of terms used in the report are given, and specific questions to be answered, a review of related research, the need for research, and limitations are discussed. Independent and dependent variable instruments, data collection, population and sample, and data analyses are described. Findings are presented in terms of the specific questions to be answered followed by results of appropriate data analyses. Conclusions and recommendations are enumerated. A bibliography is provided, and 31 tables supplement the discussion. Appended material includes a questionnaire and communication forms related to the study and 19 additional and detailed tables.
