Vocational Education Outcomes: An Evaluative Bibliography of Empirical Studies. Bibliography Series No. 49.
Bolland, Kathleen A.
As part of a project designed to identify appropriate and feasible methods of evaluating vocational education with respect to its outcomes, this bibliography contains descriptive and evaluative annotations of a selection of empirical studies of vocational education outcomes. Following a technical introduction discussing the methodological issues emphasized in the evaluative comments, thirty-one descriptive annotations are given. The annotation of each of the studies presents a discussion of the research questions and hypotheses; the study design, sample, and time frame; the statistical analysis; and the results and conclusions. It concludes with an evaluative segment addressing some of the methodological and substantive issues inherent in each study. A summary epilogue provides a discussion of the findings and methodological issues in the collection of studies. Three indexes (author, sponsor, and educational level) are provided. (LRA)
