Who Is Going to College? Predicting Education Training from Pre-VR Consumer Characteristics
Boutin, Daniel L.; Wilson, Keith B.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v55 n3 p166-175 Apr 2012
The relationship of receiving college and university training within the state vocational rehabilitation (VR) program to pre-VR consumer characteristics was investigated with a multiple direct logistic regression technique. A model containing 11 pre-VR characteristics predict the reception of college and university training for a multidisability set of consumers who received VR services (R[superscript 2] = 0.11). Characteristics represent both intrinsic and extrinsic properties of consumers associated with the outcome variable. A second analysis on the relationship between college and university training and competitive employment was conducted with a simple logistic regression technique. Consumers were less likely to secure employment following the reception of college and university training (R[superscript 2] = 0.00). Results are discussed in the context of plausible explanations and implications for career counseling. (Contains 2 tables.)
