Mini-Visit Guidelines and Rating Scale in Wisconsin Secondary Vocational Programs. Revised.
Dale, Dorothy; Klitzke, Elizabeth
These guidelines outline the role of the visiting team members and familiarize them with those details necessary to conduct a condensed external evaluation of Wisconsin secondary vocational programs. (Such condensed evaluations are conducted when a full team visitation is not appropriate.) First, the three goals of the on-site evaluation are outlined. A discussion of the team selection and team members' functions and role follows. Preparation for the on-site mini-visit is then addressed, and the visiting term report is explained and format provided. A section on guidelines for mini-visit team members details advance preparation, pre-visitation evening tasks, and on-site visitation activities. Host school preparations by school personnel are also spelled out. A Team Member Handbook for Use During On-Site Evaluation is provided. It contains forms for evaluating (1) program phases (needs assessment, goals and planning, implementation, product, and evaluation) and (2) the vocational discipline areas. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-third of the publication, contain sample reports and forms. (YLB)
