Guidelines for Establishing a Vocational Assessment System for the Special Needs Student.
Scelfo, Joseph L.; Henry, William C.
This manual presents guidelines for vocational education administrators and evaluators on how vocational evaluation can be integrated into career education and how it ties in with the mandates of federal legislation concerning the handicapped. Beginning the manual, a philosophy of vocational assessment is offered followed by a discussion of the relevancy of vocational assessment to career development. Next, the major methods of vocational assessment and the criteria for selecting a vocational evaluation system are examined. A comparison for selecting five evaluation systems using educational variables is then presented in chart form from both the administrator's and evaluator's perspective. Following this information are sections on setting up, staffing, and operating the vocational assessment unit. Also included is a section on writing the vocational evaluation report. The future of vocational assessment is analyzed in the final section. A bibliography and a glossary of terms conclude the manual. (JH)
