A Self-Appraisal Checklist for Industrial Arts in Ohio's Schools.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
This self-appraisal checklist was compiled by the Ohio Department of Education to assist Ohio teachers and administrators in their efforts to improve the total school program of industrial arts. The checklist is organized into seven major categories, which represent essential aspects of an industrial arts program. These categories are philosophy, organization and administration, class management and instruction, staff, curriculum, facilities and equipment, and evaluation. Within these seven categories, 155 items are contained, each item representing a criterion against which a school's program can be judged. Evaluative criteria are presented in the form of statements that describe attributes of school industrial arts programs. Each statement sets forth a condition that is deemed highly desirable for a quality program. An evaluator then may determine the extent to which each statement describes his/her program and rate it on a score of 0-4. Possible scores for each category are included in the publication to provide a basis of comparison between the school and the ideal situation. The checklist can be useful to schools in surveying and assessing the existing industrial arts program and comparing it to a quality program as exemplified by the checklist. (KC)
