Vocational Evaluation and Work Adjustment Bulletin; Vol. 8, Special Edition: Vocational Evaluation Project Final Report Part 1.
Vocational Evaluation and Work Adjustment Association, Washington, DC.
The first of three parts of the Vocational Evaluation Project final report contains an editorial, two task force reports, and brief summaries of the seven task force reports which comprise the final report. The editorial summarizes the project's purpose, its activities for the three years of its existence, and its results, and describes the task force reports' strength as lying in the high degree of practitioners' research that they demonstrate. The first task force report, Vocational Evaluation Services in the Human Services Delivery System, (1) describes vocational evaluation as a component of a delivery system; (2) outlines the general characteristics of the manpower service delivery system; (3) describes vocational evaluation as an alternative assessment service; (4) outlines the goal and objectives of vocational evaluation services; (5) describes the delivery of vocational evaluation services; and (6) discusses barriers related to: agency structure, personnel, philosophy, communication, and referral, The second task force report, The Tools of Vocational Evaluation, discusses three categories of vocational evaluation tools: situations as tools (on-the-job evaluation, work samples, and psychometrics); resource tools (occupational information, client information, and audiovisual materials); and applied tools (interview, observations, and reports). The second task force report also discusses tool accountability and proposals on professional action. (Author/JR)
