Institute for Improving Vocational Education Evaluation. Final Report.
Norton, Robert E.; And Others
To help equip persons in leadership positions with procedures and techniques needed for obtaining valid and reliable evaluative data, this institute involved 100 applicants, several alternates, and consultants in various planned activities. The institute focused on these major purposes or outcomes: (1) Participants would learn additional knowledges and skills needed for improving vocational education evaluation, (2) Participants would initiate the development of an evaluative plan for use within their agency, (3) Task force groups would interact with the consultants, synthesize the papers presented and make recommendations regarding the most appropriate techniques of evaluation available, and (4) The Institute staff would consolidate the various reports into a general guide on strategies and procedures of evaluation. Evaluation of the institute indicated success in accomplishing the established objectives. Based on a followup of the participants, the major recommendation was that additional institutes be held throughout the country. (Author)
