Testing of Model for Evaluation of Secondary School Programs of Vocational Education in Agriculture.
Crunkilton, John R.
To assist local administrators and teachers in determining educational objectives and priorities, this project tested a previously developed program evaluation model. The test site chosen for data collection was the agriculture department at James Wood High School. Conclusions of this test effort included: (1) The model for evaluation of secondary school programs of vocational agriculture is a viable means by which sufficient and reliable data can be collected for critical analysis and used for program direction, (2) Other teachers of the local school system in which the model is being used provide a source from which data may be obtained, and (3) The role of the advisory council is vital to the evaluation process. Also included in this summary report are the instruments used to collect data. (JS)
