Summary

The two studies which received the 1975 Robert E. Slaughter Research Award in Business and Office Education are summarized in the document. The first paper, entitled "Effectiveness of Model Office, Cooperative Office Education, and Office Procedures Courses Based on Employee Satisfaction and Satisfactoriness Eighteen Months After Graduation," measures and compares the relevance of the three types of office education courses to actual on-the-job satisfaction and performance. The sample group surveyed consisted of 713 Minnesota secondary school graduates who were enrolled in the three courses; 548 responded to the questionnaires. It was concluded that any one of the three courses was a necessary, but probably interchangeable, part of the vocational business education program. The second paper, entitled "A Study of the Content in Selected Textbooks for the Commonly Offered Basic Business Courses in Secondary Schools," evaluates the content of the following courses: general business, consumer economics, business principles and management, business law, and economics. The study focuses on the idea that some of these courses might be repetitious and could be consolidated into fewer courses. Data were collected from textbooks published for the five courses. Concluding that extensive duplication exists, course consolidation and restructuring is suggested. (EC)
