Further Development of the Vocational Education Management Information System for Virginia (VEMIS-V). Final Report.
Elson, Donald E.
The project was conducted to evaluate the vocational education reporting system in Virginia. Objectives were to determine if the student enrollment and followup information collected by the system is adequate for program planning by local school divisions; to revise the reporting system; to study procedures used in other States in determining manpower demand; to develop an instrument to determine student demand for vocational programs; to revise the forms and procedures used in plans for vocational education; to determine availability and utilization of vocational education facilities in Virginia; to develop an instrument for gathering data on teachers' daily assignments; and to assist in developing computer software for program standards. It was concluded that while the reporting system is functioning reasonably well, major revisions of forms and procedures are needed to improve its efficiency. Materials resulting from and related to the project are appended. Included are: a report on adequacy of information to localities (4 pages); 1974 and 1975 teacher guides (55 pages); a manpower demand state-of-the-art study (67 pages); vocational education student demand projection system (33 pages); annual projected plan for vocational education and preliminary applications for Virginia vocational funds for 1975-76 (87 pages); and a report on facility utilization study.
