The objectives of this project were to: (1) identify instruments that could be utilized to obtain followup information of vocational graduates, (2) develop a methodology that could be used to obtain followup information of vocational graduates, (3) field test the instruments and methodology for data collection on sample schools, (4) develop a method for summarizing and analyzing data that could be used by both local and state agencies, (5) provide a system for interpretation of the data to insure usage of the data at local levels in addition to usage at statewide levels, and (6) train local vocational guidance personnel to use the system developed. An advisory committee was appointed to guide the project staff in the preparation of instruments and methodologies, which were then field tested in three to five local schools. Job performance as assessed by the student and by the employer was obtained. Perception of guidance and placement assistance was also secured as well as an interview with a sample of guidance personnel at the local level. The primary outcomes of this project were the development of three elements that could be utilized in a statewide system for followup of vocational graduates: (1) A Student Followup Model, (2) a Counselor Followup Model, and (3) an Employer Followup Model.
