PEAPOL (Program Evaluation at the Performance Objective Level) Outside Evaluation.
Auvil, Mary S.
In evaluating this pilot project, which developed a computer system for assessing student progress and cost effectiveness as related to achievement of performance objectives, interviews were conducted with project participants, including project staff, school administrators, and the auto shop instructors. Project documents were reviewed and a brief questionnaire was used to obtain student opinions about their experiences with this man-machine system. The system will serve as a valuable change agent if the computer data is used to generate reports which can be acted upon by appropriate personnel. These reports are useful for pinpointing individual and class differences. Suggestions for future applications follow summary statements about the program's success in achieving its objectives. This document is related to a technical manual and a nontechnical manual, available in this issue as VT 018 581 and VT 018 580, respectively. (AG)
