Model Business and Office Block Program for Rural Schools. Second Year Evaluation.
Spooner, Kendrick L.
Program supervisors for Business and Office Education (BOE), State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education completed a second year evaluation of Model Business and Office Block Program for rural schools. Data analysis and report writing were completed by a private consultant. On site visits were conducted and performance tests were administered. The case studies identified the improvements in the program. These included: increased capability for delivery cap-stone experiences such as cooperative education or stimulation, and an improved instructional management system. The testing indicated no significant differences among students in this year's key school program as compared to the control school utilized in last year's evaluation. Weaknesses or areas of improvement identified in this year's Model BOE Block Program as contrasted with those identified last year include: lower student performance on typing speed tests and fewer students enrollinq in the business and office program having a career objective compatible with training they received. The evaluation ascertained no significant difference in student performance on the Civil Service and typing tests. The program faculty's utilization of the advisory committees was the same as last year and needs improvement. Administrative support for the program was positive. (Author/DWH)
