Managing ISSOE Programs. Dissemination Issues: Phase II, Final Report.
Cornell Univ., Ithaca, NY. Inst. for Occupational Education.
The Instructional Support System for Occupational Education (ISSOE) Dissemination Project was initiated to conduct research on the roles of individuals associated with the management of ISSOE. The goal was understanding the management concerns surrounding ISSOE dissemination. Phase 2 activities were designed and carried out to fulfill four major objectives: (1) to identify major role players in ISSOE implementation at state, regional, and local levels and describe their role; (2) to identify major problems and concerns of each major role player; (3) to externally validate preliminary results for the first two objectives; and (4) to provide methods of ISSOE program cost-estimation for decision makers. The principal methods used were interviews, questionnaires, and examination of relevant documents. Findings indicated a wide variety of activities within designated ISSOE roles but substantial consistency among role occupants. There was also some consistency across roles in the problems and concerns most frequently expressed. Six recommendations were made which suggest uses to which the information produced can be put for wider dissemination of ISSOE in New York State. (Appendixes contain interview guides and validation questionnaires.) (YLB)
