Apprentice Performance Evaluation.
Gast, Clyde W.
The Granite City (Illinois) Steel apprentices are under a performance evaluation from entry to graduation. Federally approved, the program is guided by joint apprenticeship committees whose monthly meetings include performance evaluation from three information sources: journeymen, supervisors, and instructors. Journeymen's evaluations are made orally to a committee member. Supervisors are required to complete a monthly, nine-item apprentice-performance check list, and may add remarks. The instructor's five-item apprentice-evaluation check list covers the apprentice's performance in his related instruction. The apprentices attend class a minimum of four hours per week on their own time, and receive college credit for courses taken under the program through the area college. Test scores, absences, and other data are recorded in the instructor's evaluation, which is submitted to the supervisor of apprentices every nine weeks. The apprentice's permanent file holds the evaluations, which are used by the Committee to grant or hold raises, toward hours for outstanding performances, to put an apprentice on probation, or to revoke an apprenticeship. The evaluations assure the company of well-prepared journeymen. (The nine performance items on the supervisor's check list and the five items on the instructor's check list are recounted in the speech.) (Author/AJ)
