Self-Study and Evaluation Guide [1976 Edition]. Section D-4: Workshop Services.
National Accreditation Council for Agencies Serving the Blind and Visually Handicapped, New York, NY.
This self-study and evaluation guide on workshop service is one of twenty-eight guides designed for organizations who are undertaking a self-study as part of the process for accreditation from the National Accreditation Council (NAC) for agencies serving the blind and visually handicapped. Provided are lists of standards to be appraised by the self-evaluation teams or the extent to which the organization meets the standards (excellent, satisfactory, adequate, poor, minimal, and not applicable). Areas of standards considered are planning for workshop services, workshop service personnel, service program, business practices, and evaluation. Throughout the guide, space is provided for written comments to be made, such as an explanation of a rating or why a standard did not apply. The concluding part of the guide provides six questions, which permit the agency to describe specific plans for improvement where the standards presently are not met, and further improvements where the standards are met. (Other accreditation guides are available--see note.) (JH)
