COPES Guide: Community College Occupational Programs Evaluation System.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
A guide designed to assist any California community college in objective self-appraisal of its occupational education programs is presented. It is divided into two volumes. This volume provides the data necessary for an understanding of COPES, the procedures for its application, and time guidelines for scheduling its use. COPES is an acronym for Community College Occupational Programs Evaluation System. Its goal is to improve the quality and availability of occupational education in California community colleges by providing: (1) easily administered procedures and instruments for studying all aspects of occupational education, and (2) competent professional assistance in applying the system. Simplicity and unity are characteristic of its design. In the application of COPES, there are five essentials to its success: (1) involvement of the top leadership of the college, (2) careful advance planning, (3) participation of knowledgeable persons from the college, district, and community, (4) report of results to college participants, and (5) planning and action as a result of the study.
