The Coordination of Program Planning and Evaluation Systems for Occupational Education. Volume 1: A Reporting and Evaluation System for Occupational Education.
Riverside Research Inst., New York, NY.
Volume 1 of the report describes the Reporting and Evaluation System for Occupational Education (RESOE) in evaluating the effectiveness of occupational program offereings, and in basing program planning and funding decisions on such evaluation. A brief introduction is followed by an outline of the requirements for reporting and evaluating occupational education programs, a discussion of existing reporting and evaluating procedures, and the tasks undertaken for the development of RESOE. The design of RESOE involved a determination of its functional specifications, ways to meet those functional specifications, and methods of managing the reporting and evaluation system data base (System for the Evaluation of Educational Data). A limited field test of RESOE is outlined, including State-required program enrollment and placement information, followup studies, and a summary of the trial. The final section presents a strategy for Statewide implementation and examines a feasibility study for implementing RESOE in the big-six cities; adding system functions in Nassau County; installation of the system at new locations; procedures for efficient system implementation and for interregional communication; and subsequent implementation.
