Wisconsin Secondary Vocational Education: 1978-1982 Aggregate of Data. Evaluation Report, Cycle I. Bulletin No. 3266.
Wisconsin Univ. - Stout, Menomonie. Center for Vocational, Technical and Adult Education.
The first five-year cycle of the Wisconsin Secondary Vocational Program Evaluation System was completed on December 31, 1982 to aid in planning and assessing vocational education in the state and to portray its impact at local, state and national levels. This aggregate report presents first phase data from high school self-evaluations. The second phase is on-site external evaluation and, finally, implementation of evaluation findings. Evaluation participants include secondary schools, one- and three-year graduates, employers of vocational graduates, in-school vocational students, vocational staff, and advisory committee members. Among the vocational education outcome findings are graduate unemployment or employment rates and status, field-related employment and satisfaction with vocational training, employer preference for hiring vocationally trained graduates and ratings of graduates' attitudes, personal qualities and job-related skills, in-school student ratings of vocational programs, and staff identification of amounts of program activity input, strengths and weaknesses, and special needs.
