Viewpoints on Vocational Evaluation.
Hiten, Hollis
The book is intended to provide vocational evaluators with general guidelines for the vocational rehabilitation evaluation process. The material is a compilation of the author's extensive experience in this relatively new field with school children, veterans, and those in various rehabilitation centers, and, therefore, contains little documentation. Both evaluation and work adjustment, two interrelated activities within the total vocational evaluation process, are divided into stages: the initial evaluation pinpointing occupation and ability, work adjustment or adaptability and an extended evaluation building upon ability with training and practice. Athorough research program would determine areas of potential employment in communities, develop job analyses and accurately test workers for various jobs. The first eight chapters briefly focus on the mechanics of the evaluation process (the evaluation unit, the evaluator, standardized tests, simulated work, on-the-job training, initial evaluation, work adjustment, extended evaluation). The next three chapters describe 75 activities illustrating the procedures (staffing and reporting, activities for testing the client, initial evaluation and those for extended evaluation). Chapter Twelve (Enter John Doe) is an application of the discussion using a fictitious person, illustrating the author's main points. (Author/JB)
