This report is organized to provide a complete, logical presentation of the major steps taken in the third phase of research on dynamics of dissemination of the Instructional Support System for Occupational Education (ISSOE). It reports on the confirmation and validation of the Phase II Final Report on Dissemination Issues and the Phase III Technical Report on Administrative Issues with practitioners in the field. Part 1 presents project background and objectives and summarizes results of phases 1 and 2. Part 2 is a summary of the technical report on implementation problems of competency-based vocational education at the local level. In part 3 is presented a detailed discussion of the design and development of procedures for validation of administrative and dissemination issues in competency-based vocational education. Part 4 contains results of the surveys of teachers and administrators to validate the problems and concerns identified with implementation and the measures identified to resolve the problems. Part 5 reports on cross-validation of the technical report which involved obtaining teachers' and administrators' rankings of the problems, concerns, and solutions identified in the technical report. Project dissemination, articulation, and evaluation are the focus of part 6. The survey instruments and project correspondence are appended. (YLB)
