Guide to Improving Vocational Education Evaluation.
Arkansas Univ., Fayetteville. Coll. of Education.
During the National Institute on Improving Vocational Education Evaluation (University of Arkansas, August 4-8, 1969) participants had some useful viewpoints on the evaluation process. These brief guidelines summarize their viewpoints on: (1) the role of evaluation in the decision-making process, (2) scope and objectives of vocational education and their relationship to evaluation, (3) basic data requirements for effective evaluation, (4) appropriate techniques for obtaining the data needed, (5) procedures for organizing, interpreting, and disseminating evaluative information, and (6) administrative procedures effective in implementing a viable evaluation program. Although participants agreed on the purposes of evaluation, they split on whether evaluation should be process oriented or product oriented. Several suggestions were made for improvement of evaluation through better coordination and techniques. The full report of the Institute, where these guidelines appear as Appendix H, is available as VT 012 305 (RIE, May 1971). (BH)
