- Differences of competency test model cause different standards of graduate competency. The differences of the competency test in Vocational High School (VHS) have not had significant positive impacts. The low graduates’ competence of the VHS is equal to the productivity of skilled labors in industry. In addition, the number of the workforce that keeps growing is not balanced to the workers' competence that the industry needs. Therefore, it impacts on the low trust to the quality of the graduates’ competence of the VHS. In another word, the implementation of industry demands has not met with graduates’ competence of the VHS. Such a condition is obtained from an in-depth analysis of the entire literature on the VHS in Indonesia. Currently, most articles related to the VHS only discussed how to get good scores in the competency test without focusing on the industry demands. Data of the competency test and the implementation of industry demands were collected through questionnaires, while data of the graduates’ competence were collected from the VHS documents. This article was purposed to analyze the condition of the competency test, implementation of industry demands, states of graduates’ competence as an effort of educational development in the VHS field.
