A Comparison of Career Education Information and Technical Assistance Systems. A Report Prepared for the National Advisory Council for Career Education.
Elliott, David L.
A study was conducted (1) to describe the specific services of seven major career education information and technical assistance systems, including (but not limited to) content of each system, services offered, clients served, procedures for use, cost for each service, service area (geographic), response formats, response time, and utility of responses for clients served; (2) to compare and contrast the various systems in terms of the items in (1) above; and (3) to make recommendations on issues to be resolved and steps to be taken to assure maximum coordination and minimum overlap among these various systems. The systems included in this study are the National Center for Career Education (NCCE); the ERIC Clearinghouse for Career Education (ERIC/CE); the Research and Development Exchange (RDX); the National Network for Curriculum Coordination in Vocational and Technical Education (NNCCVTE); the National Center for Research in Vocational Education (NCRVE) and Resources in Vocational Education (RIVE or AIM/ARM); the National Diffusion Network (NDN); and the National Technical Information Service (NTIS). The analysis and comparison of these systems were done from the point of view of the consumer, the career education practitioner or researcher. (This document contains descriptions of each system; comparisons of the systems by intended users, intents/purposes, and contents/methodology; and a discussion of issues, problems, and recommendations.)
