A Comprehensive National Review and Preparation of Training Materials for Student and Employer Follow-up. Final Report.
Asche, F. Marion; O'Reilly, Patrick A.
In a four-section final report with its focus on methodology rather than on findings of particular follow-up studies, this project addresses two needs--to identify, review, and analyze vocational student and employer follow-up efforts at local, state, and federal levels, and to prepare training materials useful to individuals or groups at all levels in designing, implementing, and evaluating follow-up systems. The report includes a summative product evaluation by external evaluators (representing state and local concerns) which notes favorably the distillation of research findings into a ten-step task model--a tool for conceptualizing a follow-up system wherein follow-up theory is "tempered" with real-world experience. The 110-page "National Review" section offers a generalized description that incorporates a state-of-the-art report on follow-up systems and a twenty-page bibliography. The 120-page "Training Guide" section covers actual follow-up system generation, with chapters devoted to planning, developing system parameters, designing the system, and operating, documenting, and evaluating the system. The project's primary purpose is to encourage development of follow-up systems that minimize costs while maximizing quality and adaptability. (CP)
