Evaluating Training and Development Systems.
Tracey, William R.
This training and development manual discusses guiding principles and elements of evaluation: (1) philosophy and goals; (2) administrative planning, organization, staffing, direction, and control; (3) plant and facilities; (4) staff and faculty composition, qualifications, screening and selection, promotion, duties, compensation, and incentives; (5) determination of needs, systems development and validation, and other facets of curriculum planning; and (6) instructional support (including instructor training and training aids and materials). More than 200 detailed analysis sheets are provided. Means are indicated for identifying strengths and critical weaknesses, devising procedures to improve the system, determining needed resources, initiating control devices, and judging the instructor's appearance, speech, techniques, and ability to evoke student participation. Appendixes give a training checklist, and rating standards for lessons and practical exercises. An index is included. (ly)
