Office of Career Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
This document, product of a review of eighty-one final performance and evaluation reports of elementary and secondary career education projects to identify needed improvements in career education program evaluation, has four parts. Part I, a critique of common evaluation practices, covers overall evaluation designs, reporting, questionnaires and interviews, sampling for student impact assessment, research designs, descriptions of evaluated programs, outcome measurement instruments and strategies, and statistical analyses and interpretation. Part II offers solutions to common evaluation problems, first presenting a problem and then suggesting a solution. Part III, addressed specifically to project directors, suggests how to get the most from a third-party evaluation. Part IV presents a checklist and explanation of terms used for reporting results of student outcome studies in career education. The section also applies the checklist to a fourth-grade model program to determine the program's impact on students. (LMS)
