Data Base Establishment and Model Development for a Coordinated Comprehensive Placement System: Final Report.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Center for Studies in Vocational and Technical Education.
The final report of the Wisconsin project, which developed a coordinated and comprehensive placement system for secondary/postsecondary schools, includes a project summary and evaluation. Both providers and receivers of placement services in Grant, Winneabago, and Racine Counties were surveyed regarding barriers and facilitations in securing educational/occupational placement. The survey indicated that: most high school resources were directed toward students anticipating further education; family and friends were rarely utilized as resources by school and community personnel; the placement-securing skills of many students were deficient; and students were concerned about marketability of skills. The model Career Placement Delivery System, a transitional placement developmental program, is designed to maximize student independence in career planning/placement and the availability of career options. The system contains three main components: (1) instructional (placement skills: qualifying, securing, and maintaining), (2) guidance (outreach, orientation, appraisal, informational, counseling, planning, program selection, and followup services), and (3) referral (placement solicitation, placement development, and ancillary services). A conceptual evaluation was accomplished through a questionnaire survey (appended) of 26 evaluators (counselors, local vocational education coordinators, placement functionaries, and administrators); two evaluators were selected for an-indepth interview to test potential utilization of the model system.
