How to Get JDRP Approval of Career Education Activities.
Hamilton, Jack A.
The Joint Dissemination Review Panel (JDRP) was established in 1972 by the Education Division of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare to review projects that seek federal funding for nationwide dissemination. Since very few career education programs have been represented among the exemplary programs approved by JDRP, a project was undertaken to find well-evaluated activities that could be submitted for JDRP approval and to describe the activities that received approval so that they could serve as models for designing future local program evaluations. Ten career education activities were recommended for JDRP's consideration after a comprehensive national search (see CE 020 215), and seven projects were subsequently approved for dissemination. (See CE 020 220-224, CE 020 233 for the individual JDRP submissions of these programs.) Detailed activity descriptions were then prepared for each of these activities to permit its replication or adaptation elsewhere. Because so few career education programs met the criteria of JDRP for evidence of effectiveness, it was recommended that local career education programs expand and upgrade their evaluation efforts by using (1) moneys from the Career Education Incentive Act to fund evaluations, (2) previously tested evaluation models, and (3) technical assistance at the time of proposal writing so that the evaluation design can be reviewed by experts. (Appendix A gives project overviews for the seven JDRP-approved career education activities.) (ELG)
