Evaluating Student Satisfaction: Measurement of Training and Job Satisfaction of Former Vocational Education Students. Research and Development Series No. 211.
Ponce, Eliseo R.; And Others
This handbook is designed to help local and state vocational education evaluation personnel conduct studies to measure the training and job satisfaction of former vocational education students. It consists of eight chapters. Chapter 1 explains the rationale, development, and organization of the handbook. Chapter 2 is composed of two commissioned concept papers on the state of the art, problems, and issues of measuring training and job satisfaction. Basic evaluation considerations (identifying relevant decision makers and information users, writing study objectives, determining respondents, choosing research designs, and selecting an evaluation instrument) are discussed in chapter 3. Chapters 4-6 explain the following alternative data collection methodologies: mailed questionnaires, interviews, and qualitative methods. Some descriptive and inferential statistics that are appropriate in analyzing and interpreting data on training and job satisfaction are examined in chapter 7. Chapter 8 explains some strategies for data presentation and utilization. A glossary, an annotated bibliography, and a selected bibliography follows. (A series of related handbooks on vocational education evaluation are available separately through ERIC--see note.) (MN)
