Validation of Instrument and Procedures for Evaluating Local Vocational Education Programs.
Kansas State Univ., Manhattan. Dept. of Adult and Occupational Education.
A project funded through the Kansas State Department of Vocational Education in cooperation with Kansas State University intended to (1) validate and/or modify a set of standards for quality vocational education programs and (2) develop instrumentation and procedures for the evaluation of local programs based on the standards identified and validated. A literature review (including an Educational Resources Information Center search, a Dissertation Abstracts search, and a survey of current evaluation instruments and procedures for other states) was conducted by project coordinators to provide information for a jury composed of representatives of vocational teacher educators, professional vocational organizations, the State Department of Vocational Education, and the State Advisory Council for Vocational Education to evaluate vocational education programs. The project coordinators complied, and the jury refined both a list of criteria for local program evaluation and a set of standards for the selected criteria. The jury clustered the evaluation criteria into the four categories or program planning, execution, support, and results. The evaluation instrument developed would be field tested during 1978-79. (Appendixes, comprising the largest portion of this report, include the criteria for evaluation of vocational education programs and the evaluation instrument and scale.) (YLB)
