A Psychovocational Evaluation Model: A New Perspective for Testing Handicapped Students.
Gruenhagen, Kathleen A.; Mohr, Laura L.
The Psychovocational model, which features a multidisciplinary team approach to composite, ecological testing in planning appropriate career/vocational goals for handicapped students, is described. The model incorporates reevaluation of each teenaged handicapped student in five areas: (1) intelligence, (2) achievement, (3) social-emotional behavior, (4) interests, and (5) vocational aptitude. The evaluation is used to predict the student's skill potential as well as social and attitudinal adjustments needed for successful future work. Examples of instruments appropriate for use in each of the five areas are cited. The model is intended to provide vocational data that can be incorporated into the written psychological report. (CL)
