A Five-State Try-Out and Demonstration Program To Determine the Generalizability of an Evaluation System for Local Programs of Vocational and Technical Education. Final Report.
Byram, Harold M.
In a proposed five-state demonstration, the four states of Arkansas, Minnesota, Mississippi and Nevada implemented a local system of directing evaluations of vocational/technical education programs in public schools. The emphasis was on both the training of local leaders by state leaders and direction of evaluation programs by local leaders. Using the results of two previous projects, this particular project generalizes the findings to other states. The methods used to acquire and disseminate information were workshops, project reporting meetings, final report and project evaluation meetings, and on-site visits. The results of the project indicate that most of the evaluation procedures are applicable to other states, that some additional procedures were developed by individual states, and that program evaluation competencies were developed in the personnel involved in the project. It was recommended that states meeting the criteria for selection of states used in this study try out the systems. Further study and a nationwide training program were also recommended. (GEB)
