Territory of Guam Performance Measures & Standards for Vocational Education.
Guam Community Coll., Agana. Territorial Board for Vocational Education.
This brief document describes a system of performance measures and standards for secondary and adult vocational education programs that determine Guam Community College's vocational program outcomes. The three components of the system are academic competency measures and standards, labor market measures and standards, and special needs accessibility measures and standards. For each component are listed the objective(s), one or more measures, the standard for each measure, and the instrument used for measurement. Academic measures determine outcomes in the acquisition of reading skills through pre- and posttest reading level measures at the secondary and postsecondary levels. Labor market measures/standards determine the vocational program completion rates of vocational graduates in their specialty areas and determine wage rates of vocational graduates in relevant areas. The three labor market measures/standards are vocational program completion rate measure (secondary), wage rate measure (secondary), and wage rate measure (postsecondary). Special needs accessibility measures and standards determine the placement rate of special needs students entering the job market. A glossary defines the terms used. (NLA)
