Evaluating Career Education Components in Teacher Education Programs.
Kenneke, Larry J., Ed.; Terry, Arthur F., Ed.
Designed to assist practitioners with the actual conduct of career education program evaluations in teacher education, this handbook has four sections which parrallel the evaluation process. The first section describes the evaluation process and the need to assess the audience to be in a better position to decide on the procedures to use and the answers to seek. Section 2 is a guide to identifying the competencies to evaluate, listing the activities which lead to the fulfillment of the competencies, and writing evaluation questions. The third section focuses on the development of an information plan for each competency to be evaluated. It is suggested that efficient information collection requires specification of the time and place for gathering information and deciding who will participate in the evaluation and be responsible for collecting and analyzing the data. The final section describes eight ways to share evaluation findings: (1) comprehensive technical reports, (2) technical report supplements, (3) executive summaries, (4) multiple short reports targeted to the information needs of different audiences, (5) popularized reports, (6) news releases, (7) oral presentations, and (8) audiovisual presentations. Appended material includes a list of career education competencies, a competency description worksheet, and a data collection worksheet. (LRA)
