Competency-Based Inservice Education for Secondary School Personnel Serving Special Needs Students in Vocational Education: A Formative Field Test Evaluation. Final Report.
Phelps, L. Allen
A detailed formative evaluation was conducted on a series of seven competency-based inservice modules designed for use by currently employed vocational and special educators. The topics of the module series focused on instructional development and on coordination of services and programming for special needs students in secondary programs. A series of major questions was developed which addressed the evaluation of the competencies included in the modules, formative interim evaluation, and product-outcome evaluation. Evaluation information was gathered from six separate sources: A panel of experts, field test participants, local program administrators, relevant documents, participant-observers, and the products developed by the field test participants. Formative evaluation data were gathered for each module and analyzed at three levels: Microanalysis, macroanalysis, and a more global assessment of the series and of selected aspects of the delivery systems used in the inservice field test. The report includes a literature review, description of methods and procedures, and presentation of findings with summary and recommendations. The appendix (one-third of the document) contains the various evaluation instruments, description of modules, and other related material. (NJ)
