The Review Panel Process.
This paper is a practical guide for states planning to implement a review panel to enhance file maintenance in a career information system. It also describes successful methods employed in established review panels in California, Alaska, Washington, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Michigan, and Oregon. The first two brief sections introduce the purpose of this publication and address the purpose of a review panel, namely to supplement standard data sources, verify information in files and identify possible variations in local areas, allow community to react, and promote public awareness of the system. In the third section steps and procedures in carrying out the review panel process are explained, including (1) preparation, (2) scheduling (determining order in which clusters or occupations are scheduled to leave office for review), (3) selection of review panel members, (4) telephoning of prospective reviewers, (5) record keeping (methods, assigning numbers), (6) mailing procedure, (7) recording costs, and (8) continuing the process. Section 4 discusses three necessary considerations for implementing a review panel--development of materials, staffing, and budget. Section 5 lists nine techniques employed by staff of one career information system to improve response rate. Five other improvements are also suggested. Appendixes include sample review panel schedule, telephone conversation, mailing list, and budget form. (YLB)
