California Guidelines for Modifying and Terminating Occupational Programs. Evaluation Handbook.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.; California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.; Los Angeles Community Coll. District, CA.
Focusing primarily on program modification and termination, this document is one of two handbooks developed by a California consortium of vocational educators to provide guidelines for developing and evaluating occupational programs. (The accompanying handbook, CE 017 928, focuses on program initiation.) A flow chart illustrating the different stages of program modification and termination precedes an introduction explaining the development and use of this manual. Guidelines and procedures are then presented for the six major stages identified in the flow chart. These stages are as follow: operate program (initiate evaluation plan); analyze internal and external factors to determine whether or not the program is meeting original goals and/or objectives; identify options for modification and analyze consequences of each option; recommend program modifications; obtain approvals for changes; and initiate program changes. Appended are two presentations on occupational program evaluation which were given at the workshops in which this manual was developed. (BM)
