Field Test of the VIEW Information System in Vocational Region III: Final Report.
Davis, B. Glen; And Others
A study of the effectiveness of the Vocational or Vital Information for Education and Work (VIEW) information system was conducted in 10 school districts in Region 3, Kentucky. VIEW utilizes a microfilm aperture card approach with each card containing information on a particular occupation localized to a specific region in the State. The evaluation of VIEW was based on a comparative study of an experimental group and a control group of eighth grade students from each school district. A pre-post survey instrument was developed to determine student awareness of occupational opportunities in Region 3. The survey was administered to both groups before and after the introduction of VIEW materials. VIEW materials were also evaluated by the experimental group. Conclusions based on data collected from the surveys indicate a generally favorable attitude to VIEW materials by students, teachers, and parents. The discussion is supported by tables and figures. Appended materials include the following: (1) testimonials, (2) sample of VIEW script, (3) user's manual including list of occupations, (4) sample VIEW card, (5) compilation of user statements, (6) pre-post survey instrument, (7) user evaluation form, and (8) professional personnel reaction questionnaire.
