PEAPOL I (Program Evaluation at the Performance Objective Level) Technical Manual.
Fresno County Dept. of Education, Fresno, CA.
This technical manual is intended for the use of those familiar with data processing who wish to understand the internal operations of the PEAPOL system (Program Evaluation at the Performance Objective Level). This automated system is described, including ten specific computer program descriptions with flow charts. Designed to allow vocational teachers and district administrators to closely monitor student progress and costs incurred in individual classrooms, this system generates a series of reports by linking progress data to cost data at the performance objective level of instruction. Operational procedures are discussed, noting these requirements for utilizing this system: (1) performance objectives with time allotments must be set up, (2) individualized instruction is necessary, (3) a time clock to record individual progress is needed, and (4) the school district must have access to a computer system programed for this purpose. Funded under the Vocational Education Act of 1968, this document is related to a nontechnical user's manual and an outside evaluation, available in this issue as VT 018 580 and VT 018 579, respectively.
