Intake and Assessment: CETA Program Models.
In this monograph, methods and models for revising or developing intake and assessment activities, facilitating enrollee success, and offering other program benefits are presented. The report, divided into four chapters, describes intake and assessment in chapter 1. Intake is defined as any process controlling the enrollee's flow into a program at a rate maintaining optimum enrollment levels. Three assessment levels are outlined: (1) judging eligibility for admission, (2) matching client to activity, and (3) using diagnostics for individualization of services. It is suggested that in designing intake and assessment activities, elements to be considered are sufficient information, cost-effectiveness considerations, and assessment functions. Chapter 2 presents an overview of assessment instruments and their limitations. In chapter 3 program model variations are described as evolving from the intensity of the assessment process, from the management activity (to maximize cost-effectiveness), and from the purpose(s) of the intake and assessment process. Nine intake and assessment models reflecting assessment level, multi-functional extent, and single or multi-agency effort are represented. Chapter 4 reviews selection, services, assessment systems, assessment devices, and client screening methods. A bibliography and three appendixes, including a summary of assessment tools for the disadvantaged, are attached. (This is one of a series of CETA program models.) (CSS)
