Evaluating Vocational, Occupational, Technical, Education (VOTE) Programs for the Handicapped on Occupational Education. An Evaluation Guide for Program Managers and Program Evaluators.
Alvir, Howard P.
Provided are hypotheses and evaluation forms to evaluate vocational-occupational-technical education (V.O.T.E.) programs whose purposes include the mainstreaming of handicapped students. Materials are geared toward testing the following five hypotheses: most occupational administrators can cite specific examples of formal or informal evaluations they conduct on a regular basis; most of the evaluations are used in formal or informal decision making; most of these decisions refer to some sort of resource allocation; most of these administrators perceive typical formal evaluation studies to be either irrelevant or unusable in their decision making; and most of these administrators perceive typical informal evaluations cited by their peers to be relevant and usable. Also provided is a glossary of terms and a test to pick out the most effective plan for each of five criteria. (SBH)
