Locally Directed Evaluation of Local Vocational Education Programs. A Manual for Administrators, Teachers, and Citizens.
Byram, Harold M., Comp.; Robertson, Marvin, Comp.
This manual presents the major steps in organizing, planning, and directing an evaluation of local vocational education programs using a systematic approach. The principles and practices outlined are largely based on the experiences of 33 schools in five states cooperating in demonstrations and try-outs of a system from 1963 to 1970. While most of these schools were medium-sized and smaller, ranging in K-12 enrollment from under 1,000 to 33,000, it is believed that the techniques set forth in the manual could also be used in metropolitan centers and in vocational schools and community colleges. Sections of the manual cover organizing and conducting an evaluation, utilizing resource people, studying the local program, conducting follow-up, identifying program needs, reporting information, and evaluation and program planning. The advantage of a locally directed evaluation is that the persons involved are those responsible for improvement of the program, those who must implement recommendations. (MF)
