An Evaluation Report on Special 4(B) Programs for the Deaf and Blind.
Alvir, Howard P.
The report summarizes the evaluation made of six special occupational education programs (five for the deaf and one for the blind) funded under Vocational Education Amendments of 1968, Part B, Section 4(B) of P.L. 90-576. Section I provides an overview of the observational techniques used to conduct the evaluation. The overview identifies what was observed, which key individuals were interviewed, and which school records were reviewed. Sections II through VII provide an overview of the observations, interviews, and reviews conducted as part of the evaluation. Each site evaluated is reported in a separate section. Sections II through VII conclude with recommendations for transportability to similar programs and with a two-page summary evaluation for each local 4(B) project. Emphasis is placed on locally successful practices which show promise of applicability in similar programs. Section VIII provides statewide recommendations and a short statement of the bases for these recommendations. (Author/SBH)
