A Case Study and Judicial Evaluation of CETA/Education Linkages and Their Transferability. Final Report.
Braithwaite, Ronald L.
The emphasis of a formative evaluation research study was on identifying exemplary linkage arrangements between the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) and education service providers in Virginia. The study had two primary phases: the case study phase (an exploratory and issue-generating process) and the judicial evaluation model--JEM (clarification of relevant linkage concerns). During phase 1, 38 interviews were conducted with CETA prime sponsors and educational providers to explore CETA/educational linkage issues through open-ended questions. In phase 2, the four stages of JEM were implemented: (1) issue generation through a case study of CETA and educational linkage providers; (2) issue delimitation through a statewide mail survey of CETA prime sponsors, Regional Operations Centers, and educational representatives; (3) argument preparation by case analysts/presenters; and (4) clarification forum, a hearing/panel of testimony on two issues--contrasts between client- and system-centered linkages and linkage intensity. Following discussion of the methodology and findings, five policy implications for CETA/education linkages and seven recommendations are delineated. Reaction to panel findings is also discussed. Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the report, include interview instruments, questionnaires, and related materials; JEM report of nonparticipant observer-documenter; issues background paper; and panel presentations.
