North Dakota Vocational Education Assessment System.
North Dakota State Board for Vocational Education, Bismarck. Research Coordinating Unit.; North Dakota Univ., Grand Forks. Dept. of Business and Vocational Education.
The instrument was designed for an assessment program to assist schools and institutions in determining specific needs of their vocational programs and to provide the North Dakota State Board for Vocational Education with accountability data for use in program development. The form is divided into 12 sections to facilitate identification of program needs: philosophy and objectives, curriculum, instructional staff, administration, physical facilities and equipment, instructional materials and supplies, guidance, community involvement, student organizations, advisory committees, students with special needs, and occupational experience. Detailed criteria for each section are listed with ratings to be indicated on a five-point continuum ranging from major improvements needed to no improvements needed. The scale also provides a space for indicating that the criteria does not apply. Each page of the instrument, to be marked by a self-assessor and/or outside evaluator, is produced in duplicate for use with carbon paper. A rating scale (0-100) following each section represents a summary evaluation to be marked based on responses to the criteria for each section. Space for comments and recommendations is also provided. Finally, an assessment profile sheet contains space for indicating the summary ratings for the major sections and an overall program rating.
