Composite Evaluation Report for Occupational Education in the State of Illinois: Fiscal Year 1974.
Illinois State Board of Vocational Education and Rehabilitation, Springfield. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
The report presents the conclusion of a year's constructive analysis of the status of occupational education in Illinois. The evaluation system, entitled "The Three-Phase System for Statewide Evaluation of Occupational Education Programs", was field-tested during 1970-71. In 1971-72, evaluations of 70 local educational agencies (LEA) were conducted, and the 1972-73 evaluation included 116 LEA. The 1974 composite summary is based on the evaluation of 72 LEA, including 55 secondary agencies, 10 postsecondary community colleges, and 7 State agencies. Each LEA evaluation focused on eight areas of concern: students served, occupational programs, administrative organization, personnel, objectives, evaluation, resources utilized, and guidance services. These eight areas have also provided the structure for the report. Each area of concern is divided into three segments: conclusions, recommendations, and suggested solutions. Of the eight areas of concern, evaluators concluded that three areas needed attention: (1) the development of locally directed, formal evaluation systems, (2) the development of measurable objectives, and (3) additional efforts in the guidance area components of placement, followup, testing, and evaluation.
