Evaluation of Certain Aspects of Vocational Education Personnel Development Centers. Interim Report.
Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.
The activities of four vocational education planning district (VEPD) centers in Pennsylvania (Temple University, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, The University of Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania State University) are evaluated in this report. Following an introduction to the evaluation project, the report consists of five sections: a summary of the four centers and an individual report on each. The summary outlines the structures, funding levels, funded activities, uniqueness, special problems, and the general progress of the center. Each report consists of a short narrative followed by parallel format information sheets for each funded activity for the center. The information sheets contain several items of information. Included at the top of each report form is the name of the institution, activity being studied, the identifying number, the amount of funding, and the approximate percentage of full funding for the activity. The bottom section of each sheet, arranged in three columns, presents the following information: (1) the common center objectives provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and agreed to by the centers, (2) a summary of the actual institutional proposal which forms the basis of each contract, and (3) statements and comments made by the evaluator regarding progress toward achieving the objectives of the activity.
