Three Phase System for Statewide Evaluation of Occupational Education Programs.
Illinois State Board of Vocational Education and Rehabilitation, Springfield. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
Because of the need for a system designed to continuously evaluate State and local programs of occupational education relative to the relevancy of educational training and accountability of funds, the Illinois Three Phase System for Statewide Evaluation of Occupational Programs was formulated to evaluate both program product and program process assessment. Phase One of the system begins with program planning decisions made by local district personnel incorporating findings from locally-directed evaluations. The results of this planning are reflected in the Local District One and Five Year Plan for Occupational Education which is prepared annually and sent to the Division of Vocational Education. Phase Two of the System includes the annual monitoring and evaluation by the State of program changes and progress reflected in the district's plan. Phase Three provides for on-site visitation of local programs to identify exemplary qualities or deficiencies in the program, and to make specific recommendations for program improvement. The document includes a detailed description of Phase Three's seven stages: pre-visitation preparation, school personnel orientation, team orientation, team exploration, preparation of the evaluation report, summary conference, and implementation of suggested solutions. Appended are the formats for the local plan and evaluation reports. (Author/BP)
