Technical Assistance in Evaluating Career Education Projects. Final Report. Volume III: The Career Education Instrumentation Substudy.
Baker, Robert F.; And Others
This document contains the third of five volumes reporting the activities and results of a career education evaluation project conducted to accomplish the following two objectives: (1) to improve the quality of evaluations by career education projects funded by the United States Office of Career Education (OCE) through the provision of technical assistance to fifteen of these projects; and (2) to identify, as a result of this technical assistance effort, a field tested model which can be used by other career education projects funded by OCE in future evaluation efforts. This volume contains the rationale, procedures, and results of the outcome and process instrument validation and construct definition activities. The first of five chapters discusses the need for adequately validated career education instruments and presents the learner outcomes used in the evaluation. Chapter 2 provides justification for the logic of construct definition, and chapter 3 presents the techniques used in the construct definition procedure. Chapter 4 discusses the selection and development of the instruments used, and chapter 5 presents the results of the substudy. (BM)
