Nelson, Norbert J.; And Others
This first of a two-part report describes a project designed to develop instruments and procedures for evaluating and assessing the status of vocational education facilities in Indiana. Chapter 1 of this report presents the goals of an Indiana project as follow: to develop, collect, and organize acceptable facility and fixed equipment criteria for vocational-technical programs in secondary schools in Indiana; to develop and test assessing instruments; to perform actual site inspections of a sample of vocational facilities in Indiana; to develop a cost analysis model for determining estimated costs of remodeling and/or new construction; and to develop a computer program to analyze the data from the building and site inspections. Chapter 2 describes the background information search conducted to determine guidelines for facility planning. Chapter 3 presents the procedures and results of the modified Delphi study which was undertaken to determine features of facilities for vocational education programs. The development of the assessment instruments and procedures are described in chapter 4, and the development of cost estimation models and computer programs are described in chapter 5. Chapter 6 discusses the field testing of the instrument and implications and uses of the packet. Finally, chapter 7 presents findings, conclusions, and recommendations. (BM)
