Vocational Education for the Handicapped: Perspectives on Vocational Assessment. Personnel Development Series: Document 7.
Ianacone, Robert N.; And Others
This document is a monograph in a personnel development series addressing issues that are pertinent for policy-making personnel concerned with vocational assessment by teachers and administrators of vocational and special education. Section 1 addresses the state of the art in personnel preparation and vocational assessment and includes five articles focusing on the literature. These articles relate to personnel preparation and vocational assessment through special education, legislative policies affecting vocational assessment, trends in vocational/special education assessment, issues and concerns of school-based vocational assessment, and facilitation of the assessment process. Section 2 suggests guidelines for personnel development. It considers the changing roles and personnel training needs in vocational/special education assessment and competency areas necessary to conduct career/vocational assessment and evaluation activities. Section 3 suggests three areas of strategies for personnel development that need to be integrated into a conceptual training framework to ensure success in vocational/special education assessment training: classroom-based considerations, field-based considerations, and alternative sites for vocational assessment experiences. Section 4 delineates two exemplary models for the delivery of vocational assessment services. Appendixes include vocational assessment materials. (YLB)
