The purpose of this study is to find out the factors influencing students' pro-fessional-technical achievements in the departments of electronics and electricity in vocational-technical senior high schools. The psychological and intellectual factors are not included in this study. The stepwise multiple regression analysis is the main statistical tool for analyzing data.
According to the result of review of literature, the personal, home, school, and social factors are the main factors in this study for surveying. The school main factor is divided into five subfactors: teacher expectation, peers, instruction, awareness of the department, and vocational guidance.
The main findings of this study are the following: (1) There is a very close correlation between theoretical subjects' achievement and technical practice achievement. (2) Sex, grade level, the type of cooperative class, home factor, students' aptitude, and teachers' instruction factors are the major influencing factors in this study. (3) The scientific aptitude is more important for electronics majors than those majoring in elect icity.
Some variables are also found very important in each of the above factors such as (1) the students' learning attitude toward their school or technical subjects in the personal factor, (2) the degree of the parent's satisfaction toward the students' school achievement, and of the parent's attention toward the skill learning in home factor,(3) the status of students' awareness of their own department is the most important subfactor in the school main factor, and (4) the chance for future promotion and the glorying in skill achievement are the important variables among the social factors.
