New Hampshire's Vocational Program Evaluation System. Manual I: Process Evaluation.
Luftig, Jeffrey T.; And Others
The New Hampshire Vocational Program Evaluation System (VPES) is designed to: (1) provide program improvement information; (2) provide information on local program effectiveness to aid in designing improvements; and (3) aid in complying with 1976 federal vocational education legislation. The evaluation system is divided into two components: formative and summative evaluation. The formative evaluation volume is concerned with gathering program improvement data, information on planning and operational processes, and results of student achievement at the local level. Instrumentation and related instructions for program concultants and local educational agency staff are included. The process evaluation sequence is charted: identification of programs for evaluation; program self-evaluation; on-site evaluation; final exit conference; and post-visit activities. On-site program evaluation procedures are meant to insure that vocational instruction meets the needs, interests, and abilities of students; satisfies the requirements of the occupation in which training is offered; meets the needs of the community in terms of the number of students placed; and meets the minimum standards required for operation of vocational education programs. (Evaluation forms comprise over one-half of this manual). (MH)
