Model for Offering Correspondence Courses through the VTAE System. Final Report.
Brenden, Gerald S.
The objectives of the study were twofold: (1) to determine if correspondence study is a viable approach for offering vocational education to residents of Wisconsin who want and need a vocational education program, (2) to design a correspondence study model for vocational, technical, and adult education (VTAE). To carry out these broad objectives: (1) inquiries were made into the amount of correspondence study presently available to Wisconsin residents; (2) existing correspondence study programs were studied to determine their effectiveness and suitability for vocational education; (3) consideration was given to the type of courses most appropriate for correspondence study within the Wisconsin VTAE system; (4) four models were developed to indicate ways in which correspondence instruction could be implemented with the VTAE system. The report describes the methodology and presents the conclusions and recommendations. Descriptions of the program models developed by the project are contained in appendixes. (Author/NJ)
