The Coordination of Program Planning and Evaluation Systems for Occupational Education. Volume 1 Appendix: A Layman's Guide to the Reporting and Evaluation System for Occupational Education.
The manuscript is a draft written in nontechnical terms, for the purpose of acquainting local and regional occupational administrators with RESOE's functional specifications and basic design concepts. Following a brief introduction is a description of what RESOE does, covering: evaluation of occupational programs; program monitoring and instructional support; student certification; support for guidance activities; cost analysis; fulfillment of State and local reporting requirements; special studies requested by local and regional occupational administrators; and various administrative applications. The flow of information through RESOE and the collection of enrollment and followup data are described. The next section explains the data base maintained by the System for the Evaluation of Educational Data (SEED), with regard to the organization of files within SEED, what SEED is and how it works, and direct access to the SEED-maintained data base. The final section contains guidelines for using RESOE to fulfill local and regional reporting and evaluation requirements, including the request form, the data input sheet, and an example. (JR)
