Displaced workers : implications for educational and training institutions( Book )

5 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents 19 papers and reactor comments from the third annual Policy Forum on Employability Development, which focused on the information and program options needed to prevent and ameliorate worker displacement. The first four papers describe and assess the context of the problem. Topics include national policy and local program response, policy recommendations emanating from the forum deliberations, and employment security. Two papers address private and public responsibilities for retraining displaced workers. The next six papers and reactor comments describe and assess operating programs for displaced workers, including two programs at two-year colleges, training programs negotiated through collective bargaining by the United Auto Workers, and Bethlehem Steel Corporation's program. A presentation on international experience and reactor comments follow. The next three research and evaluation papers and reactor comments examine use of unemployment insurance data to predict economic hardship from displacement and the economic impact of the Downriver Community Conference Economic Readjustment Activity Program. Finally, broad policy options to facilitate the reemployment of displaced workers and reactor comments are made. (Ylb)
Improving Perkins II performance measures and standards : lessons learned from early implementers in four states by Brian M Stecher( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act of 1990 required states to develop outcome-based accountability systems built around statewide performance measures and standards. States were given considerable flexibility in selecting outcomes to be measured, the measurement tools, and the standards; their systems were to be in place by the fall of 1992. To assess the progress states have made in the first three years, the authors examined the programs in four states that were among the first to begin implementation

Workplace skills in practice : case studies of technical work( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many believe that the workplace has changed in ways that require workers with higher and more varied skills--and that schools are not producing students with such skills. In this study, the authors sought to better understand skills required in technical work, the institutional context in which work takes place, and employers' strategies for meeting perceived skill requirements. The study used a sociocultural approach to examine skills and work-related dispositions (tendencies to use one's capabilities on the job) in four diverse industries. A rich picture emerged, demonstrating that work context matters in the consideration of skills: workplaces are complex, dynamic social systems that defy simplistic categorization of skills and straightforward matching of skill requirements to jobs. The study also found that employers do not necessarily understand the skills required, especially for frontline workers, nor adopt effective strategies for identifying and developing those skills. For example, employers have few connections to education providers and do not fully utilize industry skill certification. These and other findings raise questions about current public policy on school reform and skill standards
Classrooms that work : teaching generic skills in academic and vocational settings by Cathleen Stasz( Book )

3 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined how generic skills and work-related attitudes can be taught in academic and vocational high school classrooms. An instructional model for these skills and attitudes was identified that included instructional goals, classroom design, teaching techniques, and school context. Generic skills and work-related attitudes can be taught in both academic and vocational classrooms. Instructional goals should include a mix of generic and domain-specific skills. Classroom design should incorporate structural and cultural aspects of workplaces, and learning should be situated in complex, "authentic" projects that resemble adult work. Situated learning should be supported through non-authoritarian teacher roles and teaching techniques. Student assessment should emphasize the learning of generic skills and attitudes. To implement this instructional model, teachers need autonomy as well as appropriate teacher training and staff development

Using alternative assessments in vocational education( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume covers a study of the utility of alternative (i.e., non-multiple choice) forms of student assessment for vocational education, the primary objective of which was to describe various alternative assessments currently available and offer criteria for choosing among them. Six operational programs were used as case studies; each employs one or more constructed-response measures, and together they represent a range of assessment options. Each was critically reviewed based on descriptive materials, research literature, interviews, and, in four cases, site visits. The evaluation focused on comparing the different assessments' quality (reliability, validity, fairness), feasibility (cost, time, complexity, credibility), and potential usefulness for vocational educators. Design and implementation issues important to any decisions about using alternative assessments were determined (e.g., the need to clarify the assessment's purpose), as well as related issues (e.g., the relative advantages of low versus high stakes, voluntary versus mandatory participation). Illustrations are given of how vocational educators can use this review as an aid in determining the usefulness of the alternatives for a particular situation
Education and the new economy : a policy planning exercise by Cathleen Stasz( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While policymakers and scholars may argue over the extent to which our education and training system fails to prepare individuals to participate fully in the new economy, few disagree that improvements are needed. The National Center for Research in Vocational Education (NCRVE) sponsored The Policy Planning Exercise on Education and the New Economy in 1997 so that vocational-education researchers, federal and state vocational-education officials, leaders of nonprofit organizations with an interest in this area, and representatives of the business community could discuss options relevant for education and training. This report highlights participant discussions

Educational matchmaking : academic and vocational tracking in comprehensive high schools by Jeannie Oakes( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reports the results of a study that compared three urban comprehensive senior high schools to better understand the rationale and processes that underlie schools' course offerings and students' coursetaking. All three schools made assumptions about their students that were related, in large part, to students' race and family socioeconomic status. An analysis of transcripts showed that low-income and disadvantaged minority students took more vocational courses, and that heavy vocational education participation was partially consistent with respondents' beliefs that such a program is best suited for students who are not expected to be successful in academic programs. Vocational programs are perceived negatively within the schools and are unlikely to receive school-level support or staff-development resources. The study recommends that schools press forward with experimentation and the evaluation of possibilities relating to a "strong" version of integrated academic and vocational education

Teaching and learning generic skills for the workplace( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent school reform seeks to reconceptualize schooling for most students. Reform proposals urge that instruction emphasize "generic skills" as much as, or more than, it does occupation-specific or domain-specific knowledge and skills. The idea is to enable people to (1) cooperate for group problem solving; (2) define problems in complex environments; (3) seek, acquire, and synthesize new information; and (4) adapt to changes and information gaps while problem solving. This report represents an initial effort to determine what generic skills are needed, whether they are being and can be taught, and how schooling can be structured to develop these skills. The results indicate that an emphasis on training generic skills alone is unlikely to be successful without the parallel development of an adaptive motivational style. The findings also suggest that approaches for teaching generic skills can be applied to achieve integration of vocational and academic curricula
