PEAPOL I (Program Evaluation at the Performance Objective Level) User's Manual.
Fresno County Dept. of Education, Fresno, CA.
The purpose of this manual is to provide a nontechnical description of the Fresno County system for program evaluation. Intended for the use of the school administrator, teacher, or researcher whose knowledge of electronic data processing is limited, this manual presents ways of using the system, the procedures required to support system operations, and the interpretations which should be given to reports generated by PEAPOL. Designed to allow vocational teachers and district administrators to closely monitor student progress and costs incurred in individual classrooms, this system generates reports by linking progress data to cost data at the performance objective level of instruction. Topics discussed include: (1) a summary of PEAPOL's capabilities and limitations, (2) a rationale, (3) its use in vocational education, (4) collecting and developing class data, (5) developing budget information, (6) changing the records, and (7) interpreting the program's output. Funded under the Vocational Education Act of 1968, this document is related to a technical user's manual and an evaluation, available in this issue as VT 018 581 and VT 018 579, respectively. (AG)
