Common Core Curriculum for Vocational Education. Proceedings, #II: Common Core Curriculum Workshop (Fresno, California, March 21-22, 1977).
California State Univ., Fresno.
Proceedings of the second of three workshops held in conjunction with the development of thirty-four core curriculum modules for vocational teacher education are presented. The bulk of this document consists of three workshop presentations given by J. Robert Warmbrod and one presentation by Terry G. Newell. In the first address, "The Application of Research Process to Problems in Vocational Education," emphasis is given to problem selection and the types of research problems, and to types of research (descriptive, correlational, and experimental). In the second presentation, "Research Design: Implications for Interpretation," emphasis is on designing and conducting investigations such that valid findings are revealed. Threats to internal and external validity are discussed. In the third presentation, "Some Research Needs in Vocational Education," two areas of research needs are discussed: (1) teacher education, specifically relating to competency based education; and (2) the evaluation of vocational education programs. In the presentation by Newell, "Field Testing the Common Core Curriculum Modules," field test procedures and materials, analysis of the field tests of all modules and summary of pre/posttest changes are discussed. Included in the appendixes are the workshop agenda, a list of the modules, field test procedures, and lists of workshop participants and field test instructors. (The other workshops are reported in CE 018 935-937; the modules developed are CE 018 938-971.) (JH)
