A System for State Evaluation of Vocational Education. Interim Report. Research Series No. 45.
Preliminary information about a model system by which state vocational education agencies may conduct periodic program evaluations is presented. Another facet of the system is the facilitation of programmatic decision making through the incorporation of information about national and state interests, student benefits, and manpower requirements. The discussion includes a general system for self-initiated and continuous program evaluation, vocational education objectives, program goals and data needed for measuring goal achievement, evaluation procedures and materials, and field tests of the system as conducted in the vocational educational agencies of three states (Colorado, Kentucky and New Jersey) which also cooperated in developing the model system. The revised system is undergoing further field tests. December 1969, is the projected project completion date. The model system is illustrated, and examples of information forms are presented. (CH)
