Career Guidance, Counseling, Placement, and Follow-Through Program for Rural Schools. Career Guidance Program Process. Deciding Via Evaluation: A Decision-Making Guide for Improving Career Guidance through Evaluating Program Processes and Outcomes. Research and Development Series Number 118 B5.
Davis, Helen M.; Drier, Harry N.
Materials contained in the 16 volumes that make up the Rural America Series suggest practices through which rural schools can meet local community needs and realize their potential for career program delivery. This handbook, one of five in the subset of program process documents for the series, is intended for use by the coordinator in establishing a process for use of the series through systematic planning while establishing the framework for evaluation. Evaluation roles presented are formative and summative for evaluating (1) program development processes, (2) practice implementation processes, and (3) student outcomes. Section 1 of the handbook prescribes the identification of evaluation personnel and discusses effective evaluation. Section 2 deals with developing the program plan. Section 3 discusses the evaluation plan with necessary components for evaluation criteria and data sources, instruments, evaluation procedures, timelines, evaluation competency requirements, personnel available, identified inservice needs, inservice activities, and cost. Section 4 briefly introduces the process of reporting findings. The final section deals with options for actual use of the reported findings. The appendixes provide a sample program plan, evaluation plan, examples of instruments that could prove useful in implementing the evaluation plan, and a sample reporting format. (TA)
