The document consists of two sections. The first is a seven-page audit report which sought to establish whether the project evaluators' methods, data, and conclusions were valid. The overall design of the evaluation was found to be adequate for documenting progress toward the objectives, and the format was well-chosen. However, the auditors felt that the lack of data, lack of objectivity in summary statements, imprecision of language, typographical errors, and questionable grammar detract from the usefulness of the evaluation. The second part of the document is the 43-page evaluation performed by the University of Montana's Division of Educational Research and Services. Evaluative criteria were: to measure the effectiveness of project materials organized and used to expose students to career awareness in agriculture related occupations, measure the effectiveness of training programs to meet individual student needs, evaluative the functionality of placement services provided in each participating school, and determine if the vocational guidance programs are strengthened by the project's methods. The project was determined to have met its objectives satisfactorily in most instances. (Author/AG)
