McCaslin, N. L.; Walton, John
Five research objectives were identified by the Wisconsin State Board for Vocational, Technical and Adult Education in a project designed to evaluate the impact of vocational education research and exemplary projects on educational practices in Wisconsin: (1) An assessment of the impact of State funded research and exemplary activities to a research coordinating unit (RCU) and the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) during a 3-year period; (2) a determination of the degree to which the RCU and DPI assists participating educational institutions and agencies in preparing for and implementing change; (3) the identification and analysis of the pattern of change taking place in occupational education and organizational and administrative procedures as a result of RCU and exemplary activities; (4) identification of patterns of monetary support for RCU and DPI sponsored research and exemplary projects; and (5) an assessment of the approval process for research and exemplary activities. The study consisted of four phases: Phase 1 included activities to establish an ongoing interface with the Wisconsin RCU and the Wisconsin DPI personnel and to develop final evaluation designs; Phase 2 included the design and completion of plans for data collection and data analysis; Phase 3 dealt with activities necessary for data collection; and Phase 4 was directed toward data analysis and final report preparation. This complete report includes an analysis of data for each objective. (LAS)
