Continuation of Assessment and Planning. Final Report.
A project was conducted to develop a technical assistance package to assist state and local policy agencies and schools in needs assessment and planning projects as outlined in the Indiana State Plan for vocational education. Of top priority is the development of instrumentation and a system indicating in measurable terms the job requirements specified by potential employers for which vocational education must provide training. Procedures for accomplishing these goals included development of (1) a philosophy for vocational education program planning, (2) an instruction program for assessment and planning seminars, (3) guidelines for local planning, and (4) a sample fact sheet for area data from a region profile. After consultation with local directors and information analysis in other states, guidelines were prepared, evaluated, and redesigned. Evaluation of the project was based on findings of previously conducted surveys, and procedural validity was judged by local agencies. It is recommended that material included in three appendixes (manuscript for Vocational Education Program Planning, guidelines for local planning, and a sample planning fact sheet) be distributed for statewide use to provide a uniform program development system.
