Northern Neck Regional Vocational Center Evaluation and Assessment Center. Final Report.
Northern Neck Regional Vocational Center, Warsaw, VA.
The comprehensive Vocational Evaluation and Assessment Center serving five school divisions of the Northern Neck Region (Virginia) was established in 1989. An assessment center coordinator determined the needs and perceptions of potential service consumers. Vendors were contacted and equipment was selected. Forms and equipment for the Phase I and II stages were selected and ordered. Information was obtained from vocational instructors' Training Analysis Composites. Inservice training programs were conducted for vocational teachers, guidance counselors, and special education teachers. Thirty students currently enrolled at the center in a Trades and Industrial (T&I) Exploratory course participated in Phase I assessment. Students were assessed via the Apticom System for aptitudes and interests. Information was also obtained from parent questionnaires, student interviews, referral information from the home school, and behavior ratings from their T&I instructors. All students completed the data gathering stage during April 1990. Approximately 250-300 students received Phase I assessments at their home schools during the 1990-91 school year. Phase II assessments were administered later on the basis of referral and recommendation. (A budget summary and 11 program goals are included.) (NLA)
