Measures of Success: A Survey of Selected Vocational and Technical Education Programs in Florida which Train Students in Occupations Requiring Licenses.
Florida State Advisory Council on Vocational and Technical Education, Tallahassee.
A study of 13 vocational and technical education programs in Florida was conducted which represented an attempt to identify valid and reliable sources of data whereby some vocational programs might be evaluated in specified terms of effectiveness. The programs selected for study were among those which require graduating students to pass licensing examinations before they are allowed to legally participate to the fullest extent in the occupation. In essence, the study sought to identify how successful schools in Florida have been in training students in these programs. The 13 programs covered in the study are barbering, cosmetology, cosmetology specialist, dental hygiene technology, emergency medical technology 1, physician's assistant, professional nursing, practical nursing, masseur-masseuse, mortuary science, commercial pilot, airframe mechanic, and powerplant mechanic. The percent of student applicants passing their licensing exams was one measure chosen with which the success of the various vocational training programs was analyzed. Where available, data was compiled from both public and private school programs. The report contains separate sections on each occupation, each including job description, license requirements, training programs, and review of data. A concluding section charts commonalities of license requirements, presents summary of findings and council recommendations, and lists data sources for each occupation. (TA)
