Minugh, Carol J.; Morse, Dian
This manual for student evaluation personnel, one in a series of nine staff development guides prepared by the Philadelphia School District, clarifies roles and responsibilities of various staff members and parents in providing programs to meet the career and vocational education needs of mildly to moderately handicapped students. Designed to be relevant to the specific needs of student evaluation personnel, this manual is organized into four sections. The first section provides an overview of vocational and career education of handicapped students from the perspective of student evaluation personnel. Topics covered include legislative implications, special considerations, vocational options and skills, testing the handicapped, developing the Individualized Education Program, and preparing vocational assessment reports. The second section provides information on specific role responsibilities of student evaluation personnel as shown on the specific responsibilities grid; individually discussed in this section are the roles of child study evaluation team members and vocational education evaluators. The final two sections of the booklet consist of a summary and selected readings. An appendix profiles 10 vocational evaluation systems. An annotated bibliography is also included. (KC)
