Interpreting Outcome Measures in Vocational Education: Executive Summary.
McKinney, Floyd L.; And Others
The project summarized here focuses on the interpretability of vocational education outcome data. The booklet first covers the project problem and background, project objectives, general plan of operation, and the analysis of extant data bases in vocational education. It then discusses a case study of differences in job placement rates reported by states, including the case study questions, sample design, conclusions, differences in high and low placement states, suggested research hypotheses, and suggested guidelines for using placement data as reported by states. Finally, the booklet presents the titles of three papers commissioned for the project, the topics considered at a project-sponsored national conference on vocational education outcome measures, a description of a handbook on vocational education measures, and nine project conclusions.
