Self-Appraisal Manual for Local Vocational Education Programs.
Baker, Richard A.; Drake, James Bob
One phase of program evaluation in vocational education may be thought of as an appraisal of the operational procedures and the resources available. If program improvement is accepted as one area of evaluation, then more attention should be given by local vocational personnel to setting objectives, identifying evidence of attainment, and inferring from the evidence those changes that might bring about improvement. The procedures and instruments included in this manual are the results of the efforts of some 500 persons, including local vocational directors, teachers, principals, superintendents, supervisors, directors of vocational institutes, junior college deans of instruction, teacher trainers, and state advisory council members. The manual contains self appraisal instruments and directions for evaluating adult supplementary programs, adult preparatory programs, secondary and postsecondary occupational programs, and nonoccupational programs. Charts and procedures to be utilized in the followup of students in the Vocational Information Reporting System Manual and the self appraisal instruments to be used are included. (Author/SN)
