Awareness, Use, and Perceived Impact of Selected Stakeholders toward the Implementation of Skills Standards in the State of Illinois
Bragg, Debra D.; Marvel, Matthew R.
Career and Technical Education Research, v33 n2 p93-116 2008
This study examined differences in the awareness, use, and perceived impact of educators, employers, and workforce training providers toward skills standards implementation in the State of Illinois. Group differences were revealed on the use of skills standards, with educators displaying significantly higher levels of use than employers or workforce training providers. Group differences were also evident on the perceived impact of skills standards; wherein, educators and workforce training providers were more likely than employers to perceive an impact, particularly with respect to career and technical education (CTE) and private sector human resource functions. The results indicated relatively limited engagement of employers in skills standards, despite their support and encouragement of the educational community to engage in implementation.
