Resource for Evaluating VR [Vocational Rehabilitation] Programs.
Moriarty, Joseph B.; And Others
Operating under the assumption that: (1) state agencies routinely collect large amounts of data; (2) these data possess significant potential for evaluating VR programs; and (3) the program evaluation potential of these data has been largely untapped, the W. Va. Research and Training Center has been developing techniques for evaluating rehabilitation programs. This publication contains three papers, the first of which details the basic rationale for a technique developed in the Research and Training Center that is designed to simplify the ultimate development of standards for self-evaluation of VR programs. This technique, called Profile Analysis Technique, takes currently existing data and formats it in such a way as to increase its intelligibility. The second paper, dealing with Marco and Micro Aspects of Program Evaluation in rehabilitation, takes the theoretical approach developed in the previous paper and shows its application to a number of real-life situations. The third paper, dealing with Measurement of Client Outcomes, continues with a demonstration of how routinely available data can generate fine-grain analysis of program functioning. (Author)
