For the third year, an Employer Satisfaction Survey collected ratings given by Tennessee employers to recent graduates recognized as secondary vocational-technical program completers. On a statewide basis, the average number of eligible employers per eligible program was 7.5. In total, the usable rate of return was 62 percent (798 employers). The survey form had nine items with a Likert response scale. The first five items pertained to the vocational program completers as employees; the other four pertained to the respective local secondary vocational-technical programs. Findings were reported on the following levels: statewide, by size of firm, districtwide, and by the classification of instructional program (CIP) statewide. According to the findings, statewide mean ratings from Tennessee employers continued to indicate that secondary vocational-technical completers were valued employees for entry-level jobs. The mean ratings for the local programs continued to be lower as a group than the mean ratings for the completers on the job. All the statewide mean ratings were above the standards set by the Tennessee State Board of Education. The secondary vocational-technical education programs in Tennessee continued to be relevant to meeting the Tennessee employer labor market needs. (The report includes 57 tables, 21 graphs and charts, and appendixes that contain the survey instrument and responses, 28 additional data tables, and respondents' comments.) (YLB)
