EVALUATION SYSTEMS FOR LOCAL PROGRAMS OF VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION, A FINAL REPORT OF PROJECT 701.
BYRAM, HAROLD M.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT WAS TO MAXIMIZE THE USE OF LOCAL PERSONNEL, LOCAL RESOURCES, CONSULTANT LEADERSHIP, AND RELATED PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE IN THE FURTHER DEVELOPMENT AND TRIAL OF A SYSTEM OF EVALUATION FOR LOCAL PROGRAMS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION. NINE SCHOOLS SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE LOWER PENINSULA OF MICHIGAN AND ONE SCHOOL IN THE UPPER PENINSULA WERE SELECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROJECT. ACTIVITIES INCLUDED THE APPOINTMENT OF A DIRECTOR OF THE LOCAL EVALUATION PROJECT IN EACH SCHOOL, THE UTILIZATION OF THE STATE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT STAFF AND CONSULTANTS FROM THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION IN AN ADVISORY CAPACITY, AND THE UTILIZATION OF WORKSHOPS, CONFERENCES, AND CONSULTATIONS AT INDIVIDUAL SCHOOLS TO DEVELOP THE EVALUATION CAPABILITY OF THE LOCAL PROJECT LEADERS, THE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES IN THE LOCAL SCHOOLS, AND THE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS ASSIGNED TO THE PROJECT LEADER. EACH SCHOOL PREPARED A PROJECT PLAN CONTAINING AIM, MEANS OF STAFF INVOLVEMENT, ACTIVITIES TO BE CONTINUED, SUBJECTS AND AREAS OF STUDY, KINDS OF RECORDS TO BE KEPT, KINDS OF CONSULTATION HELP NEEDED, AND A SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES. FUTURE PLANS INCLUDE PROGRESS REPORT MEETINGS, CONSULTANT VISITS TO SCHOOLS, DEVELOPMENT OF INSTRUMENTS TO DETERMINE PERCEPTIONS OF LOCAL SCHOOL PERSONNEL ABOUT THE ROLE OF CONSULTANTS, AND ASSEMBLY AND ANALYSIS OF DATA FROM THE RECORDS OF LOCAL SCHOOLS.
