Vocational Assessment of Students with Special Needs: A Manual for Implementation in the Public Schools. Project VOC-AIM.
This manual was designed to be a comprehensive resource for a wide variety of persons interested in vocational assessment, including teachers, administrators, and counselors. It provides a resource that educators can use in locating guidelines at specific points in designing or implementing vocational assessment programs for handicapped students. The guide contains eight chapters. The suggested core process for vocational assessment is outlined in chapter 3 and in the section of chapter 6 entitled "Guidance/Process Model for Vocational Evaluation." These sections establish the framework around which the rest of the discussion of vocational assessment is built. Administrators especially may be interested in chapter 2, which outlines the tasks for developing vocational assessment; discussion of planning, staffing, and funding is provided. The "Administrative Arrangements" section of chapter 6 presents options for comprehensive vocational assessment. Chapters 4, 5, and 6, which contain information about various assessment instruments, are designed primarily for those who will implement the various levels of vocational assessment. Other topics considered in the guide include an introduction to vocational assessment, vocational assessment and individualized educational planning, and vocational assessment/evaluation programs in Texas. Extensive appendixes to the document contain forms used in planning and implementing vocational assessment. (KC)
