The Process Batteries Operations Report.
The paper describes the instruments and procedures for collecting process information (information describing components of the planned educational process) for the Management Information System for Occupational Education (MISOE). The selection of variables and the decision to assess interactive rather than isolated process variables are discussed. The three process batteries, groups of self-report questionnaires, are reviewed with a listing of the instruments included and a description of the variables measured by them. The batteries and the instruments in them are: the Teacher Process Battery (Massachusetts Occupational Education Teacher Survey, Teacher Program Questionnaire, Image of Vocational Education Questionnaire, Purdue Teacher Opinionaire, Verbal Reasoning Scale of the Differential Aptitude Tests, and Planning Activities Sheet for Teachers and Administrators), the Administrator Process Battery (Massachusetts Administrator Inventory, Image of Vocational Education Questionnaire, Verbal Reasoning Scale of the Differential Aptitude Tests, and Planning Activities Sheet for Teachers and Administrators), and the Student Process Battery (Student Program Questionnaire and School Sentiment Index). An item by item analysis of the variables and factors measured by the three batteries is presented in tabular form. The research design and recommendations for future investigations are outlined. General guidelines for administering the batteries are provided. The instruments are not included. (MS)
