Martin, Michael P.; And Others
A research/demonstration project was designed to evaluate existing vocational education programs offered at the Oregon State Correctional Institution (OSCI) and to provide residents with services such as ability assessment, employment or orientation, job sampling, career awareness counseling, and instruction. The project's anticipated outcome was a vocational education program which clearly demonstrates the capability of community-based training facilities (in this case, Chemeketa Community College) to provide on-line training in a correctional setting. Differing effects of degree-oriented/non-degree oriented instruction on residents' attitudes or career choices were measured. Six data collection procedures were used: (1) interviews with OSCI and Chemeketa staff, case study resident students, and project staff; (2) observations (classroom and counselor/student discussions); (3) case studies; (4) instructors' self-ratings; (5) resident students' self-ratings; and (6) analysis of samples of resident students' projects or other outputs in four vocational education programs. The project's anticipated outcome was realized. It was decided that the project model appears transportable to other institutions and agencies at low cost. (Appendixes include interview guides for staff and students, assessment forms, student daily record, samples of course integration, career maturity profile, and an individual aptitude profile.) (CT)
