Vocational Education Statistical Data Plans and Programs.
This document provides information on the Data on Vocational Education (DOVE) plan, which has provided the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) with a framework on which a viable data collection and dissemination program is being constructed for vocational education. A section on the status of DOVE discusses the attainment of the principal goal of designing a method for deriving vocational education information from the NCES data sets and viewing vocational education in the context of all education. Recent and anticipated accomplishments are described. Descriptions follow of NCES data sets with vocational information. Appendix A is a "by-acronym-and-name" overview of NCES data sets with vocational education information. Each data set is identified as capturing data in either the secondary or postsecondary arena. Appendix B provides a more detailed description of the NCES data sets or supplements to the data sets with vocational statistics. Appendix C frames the NCES data effort by categories of educational information (e.g., institutions, enrollment, teachers). Appendixes D and E are linked together to describe the publications, current and projected, that have been generated from the NCES data sets. Appendix D contains a cross-reference for current NCES publications only keyed to the data sets; appendix E is the publications list. (YLB)
