ISSOE. Field Test--Prototype Student Reporting System for ISSOE. Final Report, Findings and Recommendations.
Cornell Univ., Ithaca, NY. Inst. for Research and Development in Occupational Education.
A prototype manual Instructional Support System for Occupational Education (ISSOE) student reporting system (SRS) developed in 1977-78 (see note) was field tested to determine the feasibility of collecting data on student progress from teachers, processing it at a central location, and returning student informational forms to teachers and students. A review of literature relevant to the development of the SRS, administrator and teacher orientation meetings, and needs assessment meetings with teachers were conducted prior to actual data collection. The field test involved 335 students in eleven auto mechanics and fourteen office practice programs. Once each reporting period teachers indicated individual student performance levels for completed ISSOE competencies matched to Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) job titles. The data was processed at the Cornell Institute for Occupational Education, then returned on informational sheets to students, teachers, administrators, and guidance personnel. Their responses and those of others in the education and work communities were solicited in interviews and meetings. Responses were generally positive. Appendixes, amounting to one-half of the report, include recommended student reporting forms; ISSOE competencies matched to DOT job titles (automotive and office); agendas for administrator and teacher meetings; and minutes of the employers' conference.
