Evaluation Report--An Interaction Simulation: Coordinated Local-State Vocational Education Planning. Final Report.
Koeninger, Jimmy G.; Ward, Darrell L.
This evaluation report encompasses two 3-day leadership development workshops conducted for state department staff and other vocational personnel in order to evaluate a simulation leadership training package. Prior to the workshops, the training package was developed, pilot tested, and revised. During the development phase, consideration was given to developing a training package that would: (1) provide a realistic learning environment in which the planning process could be experienced, (2) generate a high degree of participant involvement, (3) increase understanding and ability to apply the planning techniques, and (4) incorporate a strategy allowing implementation with large or small as well as local or state groups. During the workshops, four instruments were used to collect evaluative data, and a summarization of the data is provided for each research question. Specific conclusions were: (1) The simulation package is equally effective for state-level administrators, supervisors, and other state-level personnel, (2) The activities generated and maintained participants' involvement and enthusiasm throughout the experience, and (3) The package did provide a realistic learning environment in which the knowledge, skills, and techniques of vocational education program planning could be applied.
