An Evaluation of Tech Prep in Ohio. Year One Final Report.
MGT of America, Inc., Tallahassee, FL.
In January 1995, a private research firm conducted the first year of a 5-year evaluation of tech prep (TP) in Ohio. State- and consortium-level baseline data about the following were collected: state policies/practices for TP; role of consortia in TP; professional development of instructors/administrators for TP; selected groups' knowledge/attitudes about TP; and impact of TP on current/former students. Data were collected from the following: interviews with 21 consortium coordinators, 22 school district and 22 joint vocational services district representatives, 24 community/technical college and 9 four-year university representatives, 20 business/industry and 11 labor representatives, 10 parents of TP students, and 12 TP students; survey of all 712 students and parents of students enrolled in TP in 1994-95; and survey of 287 business/industry representatives identified by consortium coordinators as individuals familiar with the efforts of local TP consortia. Data from the interviews, the 70 responses to the student/parent survey (10% response rate), and the 113 responses to the business/industry survey (39% response rate) were analyzed. Issues requiring further study were identified, and the evaluation plans for the remaining 4 years of the study were detailed. (Appendixes constituting approximately 75% of this document contain the 14 survey instruments and tallied results.) (MN)
