Data Needs in Vocational Education. "The Development of a Minimal Information System to Satisfy the Needs of Selected User Groups." Final Report. Volume V. Data Analysis: Procedures and Results. Project EDNEED I.
Drewes, D. W.; And Others
Detailed descriptions of the data analysis procedures used in Project EDNEED (Empirical Determination of Nationally Essential Educational Data) are contained in this volume, the last of a five-volume final report. Results of the application of procedures and a narrative interpretation of the results are included. Priority rankings of 323 questions found in the related "EDNEED Classification" document are arranged in 28 tables. For each of the 28 priority rankings, the following statistics are computed: (1) The mean rank of questions within each file, (2) the minimum rank and the maximum rank for questions within each file, (3) the range of the ranks within each file, (4) the rank order of the files ranked according to the mean rank of each file, and (5) the Kruskal-Wallis H statistic which is used to test the hypotheses that the files differ according to mean importance of questions. Appendix A provides an example of priority ranking procedures. Appendix B discusses the determination of weightings to be used in priority determination, and Appendix C contains tabular presentation of data questions prioritized by similarity index according to level and use.
