Occupational Exploration Program: Evaluation Report Notebook--An Overview.
Altschuld, James W.; And Others
The overview serves as an introduction to seven evaluation reports produced for the Occupational Exploration Program (OEP), a joint developmental effort of the Center for Vocational Education, Ohio State University, and the Jefferson County, Colorado public schools. The 1973-74 project was designed to provide occupational exploration experiences for junior high school students. The report contains a description of evaluation procedures employed by the program as well as an overall description of the program itself. The latter includes goals, objectives, and a discussion of simulation, the major technique used for delivering the program. The evaluation procedures section covers summative and formative evaluation concerns; general sampling; design parameters; and a brief description of the Reviser's Information Summary, the compilation of evaluation data that accompanies each of the seven OEP reports. The final section describes the evaluation instruments utilized and procedures followed. Discussed are: knowledge tests, affective tests, student module questionnaires, teacher evaluation logs, panel review procedures, and observer forms. (Author/MW)
