Magisos, Joel H.
The purpose of the AIM/ARM project (Abstracts of Instructional Materials in Vocational and Technical Education/Abstracts of Research Materials in Vocational Education) was to achieve effective use of research reports, program descriptions, and instructional materials by researchers. To this end, the project announced 3,600 reports and 1,189 projects in the bimonthly publications, AIM/ARM and "Resources in Vocational Education" (RIVE), during the three-year contract period. It produced seven instructional materials catalogs, eighteen topical bibliographies, fourteen unpublished interpretative papers, three integrative analyses, and six special publications. Project staff made twenty presentations to national and regional meetings, collaborated with fourteen agencies and organizations, and conducted 106 literature searches. Major emphasis was given to improving the quality of input to information systems, helping users improve project design and education programs by using information, and redesigning the bimonthly publication. The project's focus on data base building, knowledge transformation, and information services will be continued by the National Center for Research in Vocational Education. (Author/EM)
