—The objective of this study is to explore the
perceptions of vocational teachers in senior high schools, with
teachers’ different backgrounds as variables, regarding the
effects of the preparatory measures of the 12-year fundamental
education program on increasing student recruitment. This
study constructed the questionnaire as the research tool. Upon
an initial review by scholars and experts, trial test
questionnaires were issued to vocational teachers affiliated with
five schools in central Taiwan. After the trial test questionnaires
were recovered, statistic analysis were performed to screen for
validity and to eliminate questions with low correlations.
Formal questionnaires were then constructed and issued to
vocational teachers at 25 schools selected with the stratified
random sampling method from the varied populations; 568 out
of the 691 issued questionnaires were recovered, for an effective
recovery rate of 82.20%. SPSS20.0 software was used for data
analysis, with such statistical methods as frequency distribution,
percentage, means, standard deviation, t-test, One Way
ANOVA and Pearson Product-Moment Correlation.
