Zornitsky, Jeffrey J.; And Others
This guide has been developed to help Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) prime sponsors to meet their responsibility for assessing the effectiveness of their efforts by examining the extent to which CETA participation has enhanced the longer-term income and employability status of former enrollees. As part 2 of the guide, this document provides a more in-depth treatment of the issues covered in part 1 and contains the following: (1) an overview of the program evaluation in the employment and training system; (2) a discussion of the necessary types and sources of local follow-up data; (3) a discussion of the actual operation of a follow-up system, including the design of survey instruments, the selection of an organizational approach, and the location, contact, and interview of former CETA participants; and (4) a review of issues related to analyzing local follow-up data, including an illustration of alternative analytical approaches. These topics are covered in four chapters. The final part of the report contains technical appendixes such as sample survey instruments, wage and tax statements, and a review of sampling procedures.
