Evaluation of the Manpower Development and Training Act (MDTA) programs has been casual and nonconforming, making program improvement difficult. To develop appropriate evaluation techniques, consultants reviewed the objectives and process of MDTA and identified five overlapping and dependent functions, namely administration, counseling, instruction, learning, and facility. The final instruments utilize self-evaluation for the administration and counseling functions, and self-evaluation and expert evaluation for the instruction and learning functions, while the instrument for evaluating facility involves only expert evaluation. In addition, a computerized analysis system was designed to provide state and local administrators with evaluative program summary data such as training costs and personal characteristics of MDTA trainees. The evaluation instruments are appended as well as sample printouts of the analysis data and computer forms for its implementation. (CD)
