Student Selection for Vocational Education.
Associated Educational Consultants, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA.
This booklet is designed to assist those responsible for student selection in making decisions regarding student admission to secondary vocational-technical programs. Following an introductory chapter, chapter 2 describes a student selection committee's composition and responsibilities. Chapter 3 synthesizes selection criteria, as identified by review of related research and survey of vocational and feeder schools nationwide and in West Virginia. Chapter 4 presents seven to ten selection criteria identified as most closely related to predictions of success in each of fifty major West Virginia vocational programs. Chapter 5 is a how-to chapter on developing a Student Selection Guide and using the information for student screening and selection. A method for assuring compliance with nondiscrimination guidelines in student selection is presented in chapter 6. The largest section, chapter 7, contains profile information of major categories of occupations most closely related to the fifty West Virginia vocational programs with highest enrollment, each of which is identified by United States Office of Education code and title. These are designed for use as work sheets by counselors and selection committee members who can add information on state and local employment needs and relevant work factors to those suggested. (Additional selection criteria and summary reviews of aptitude tests are appended.) (YLB)
