GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR EVALUATION UNDER THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ACT OF 1963.
KREBS, ALFRED H.
TEACHERS, SUPERVISORS, AND ADMINISTRATORS OF VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE PROGRAMS SHOULD DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT A SOUND PHILOSOPHY OF CONTINUING EVALUATION AT THE LOCAL, STATE, AND NATIONAL LEVELS TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON PROGRAM RESULTS AND KINDS OF ADJUSTMENTS NEEDED PRIOR TO THE MANDATORY NATIONAL ADVISORY COUNCIL EVALUATIONS. SIXTEEN GUIDING STATEMENTS FOR PLANNING AND CONDUCTING EVALUATION WERE FORMULATED FROM REFERENCES TO EVALUATION IN THE ACT. EXAMPLES ARE -- (1) THE EFFECTIVE AND ADEQUATE EVALUATION OF VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE WILL BE LARGELY DEPENDENT UPON DATA GATHERED BY VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE TEACHERS, (2) EVALUATIONS OF VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE WILL BE PRESENTED IN A FORM WHICH WILL DEVELOP A PUBLIC AWARENESS OF BASIC STRENGTHS OF THE PROGRAM, (3) THE MAJOR EMPHASIS WILL BE ON STUDYING THE SUCCESS WITH WHICH STUDENTS HAVE BEEN PLACED IN JOBS OR IN PROGRAMS OF CONTINUING EDUCATION, (4) EACH PART OF THE PROGRAM WILL HAVE PROCEDURES FOR CONTINUING EVALUATION, AND (5) CONTINUING EVALUATION OF VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE PROGRAMS CAN BEST BE ACCOMPLISHED BY LOCAL CITIZEN'S ADVISORY GROUPS. IF PROGRAMS NEED TO BE CHANGED, LEADERS IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION SHOULD BE THE FIRST TO RECOGNIZE THE NEED FOR IMPROVEMENT. THE REQUIRED NATIONAL EVALUATION REPRESENTS THAT WHICH SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE BY VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE PERSONNEL IN THE PAST.
