A Schema for Recruiting and Selecting Secondary Vocational Education Students. Project Monograph.
Pershing, James A.; Schwandt, Thomas A.
Designed as a guide for state- and local-level vocational education program administrators, this monograph presents a schema for recruiting and selecting students for secondary vocational education programs. It also describes noteworthy recruitment and selection strategies and techniques suitable for adaptation in local schools. Section 1 is an introduction. In the second section the five phases of the largely theoretical schema are described. These processes are planning, recruitment, selection, instruction, and evaluation (post-school student activities). Section 3 examines recruitment and selection strategies and techniques and extends the discussion of the rationale for these two activities begun in the previous section. Annotations of three handbooks/manuals directly addressing recruitment of students for vocational education programs are provided, and some documented recruitment strategies and methods are highlighted. Critical issues in the design of a selection strategy are discussed, including roles of vocational appraisal and choosing appropriate selection instruments and method. A listing is appended of test instruments accompanied by author(s) and/or publisher and summary of content/usability. Six categories of instruments are provided: Achievement Batteries, Aptitude Measures, Measures of Career Development/Planning, Interest Inventories, Personality Measures, and Miscellaneous. (YLB)
