The Contributions of the Bureau of Occupational Education Research towards Establishing an Education Evaluation System.
Alvir, Howard P.
This report specifies the contributions of the Bureau of Occupational Education Research (BOER) towards establishing an education evaluation system in the New York State Education Department. Section I shows what BOER has done since 1968 in developing an education evaluation system. Thirteen documented examples are given to demonstrate samples of the understandings, insights, personnel, skills, media, data, objective measures, applications, systems, and other resources developed by BOER that can be integrated into almost any type of education evaluation system that is likely to emerge. Section II goes beyond the obvious requirements of more time, money, and manpower to make any such system workable by suggesting the need to coordinate existing departmental functions through a number of organizational "linking pins" and the need to "tool up" existing resources to produce a departmentwide effort to bridge the evaluation gap in a humanistic fashion. Specific examples and directives are given to spell out exactly what is meant by "linking pins" and "tooling up." The report concludes that evaluation is best achieved when the goals of a particular function or unit are expressed so clearly and succinctly that even a stranger walking in off the street can get a clear idea of what is going on and how well it is being done.
