A Study to Identify the Influence of Factors Other Than the Attainment of Job Skills Affecting the Long Range Success of Vocational and Technical Training Programs: Vol. 2.
Welker, L. C., Jr.; Ginn, Clyde N.
The document contains the detailed tabulation of the data collected in an investigation of the degree to which social and mobility factors are important for the success of secondary and postsecondary students in vocational and technical training programs. Chapter 1 presents information on the relationship of social competency to mobility factors in the form of 122 5x4 matrices for the nine geographic zones of Mississippi, categorized in the following occupational areas: trade and industry, technical education, business and office, marketing and distribution, and health education. Matrices for each area contain data for secondary and postsecondary students and a zone composite of the students. Matrices are also presented for State composites of each occupational area, secondary and postsecondary students, and a State total for all students. Chapter 2 presents information on the relationship of mobility and social factors to personal and contextual factors. Data were derived from questionnaires completed by students. Mobility and social data are tabulated and discussed separately for secondary and postsecondary students. Twenty-two general conclusions from the study are outlined. The questionnaires used are appended. (Author/EC)
