Oregon Secondary Vocational Education Effectiveness Model. Education and Work Program. Project Report.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
This publication contains a model which is a framework for evaluation of secondary vocational education effectiveness at the school, district, regional, and state level in Oregon. The model can also be used to obtain information on the characteristics of students enrolled in vocational education and of those who choose not to take vocational education. The document is organized in five sections, plus appendixes. Section 1, the introduction, contains a description of some major obstacles faced in evaluating vocational education; purposes for the model; discussion of the key concepts of vocational education, evaluation, and effectiveness; and assumptions underlying the model. Section 2 presents a conceptual framework for viewing vocational education evaluation, while section 3 discusses some of the key elements of evaluation already in place or available in some districts. Section 4 describes the evaluation instruments developed by this project; in Section 5, some ways that the model can be used are suggested. A brief description of the total project is found in appendix A, while the remainder of the appendixes consist of student survey instruments for vocational education evaluation. (KC)
