Kim, Jin Eun
This handbook was developed to assist vocational administrators in (1) developing strategies for goal-setting and resource allocation, (2) identifying potential problems, (3) analyzing cost-effectiveness of vocational programs, and (4) improving managerial skills using information from the analysis in the decision-making process. The handbook includes six strategy papers, the procedures and results of nominal group meetings, and small group workshop activities. Strategy papers presented to the workshop include "Inside the Black Box: Process Evaluation as a Part of Cost-Effectiveness/Benefit Analysis," by Lois-ellin Datta; "Increasing the Cost Efficiency of Vocational Education," by James Pershing; "Improving the Cost-Effectiveness of Vocational Programs," by George Copa;"Determining Program Objectives and Outputs," by Roderick McKinney; "Analyzing Program Cost," by Don Pennington; and "Computing the Cost-Effectiveness Measures for Vocational Education Programs," by Jin Eun Kim. A list of program objectives and target goals and an example program cost analysis form are appended. (Author/LRA)
