Data Availability in Vocational Education. Final Report. Volume II. Data Base of Needed and Collected Information.
Lawrence, John E. S.; And Others
This is the second of a four-volume report of Project EDNEED II (Empirical Determination of Nationally Essential Educational Data). (Project EDNEED II, conducted from July 1975 to September 1976, was designed to document the extent to which data currently collected by State vocational education agencies could be used to answer prioritized vocational education informational needs for all 50 States and five U.S. territories.) This volume presents the data base that was constructed as a result of the comparison between needed and collected vocational education data from all 50 States and five of the U.S. territories. The data base consists of 209 questions and 1,065 information elements, with accompanying indexes that demonstrate for each information unit how "needed" and how"collected" it is, or the relative need and current availability of the information elements. The index of need reflects the combined ratings of Federal, State, and local user groups, with each level receiving equal importance weightings in the analyses. This volume also includes the project summary, an index to the files and questions, a foreward on the utility and organization of the data base, and a list of references. (HD)
