A System for the Identification, Assessment and Evaluation of the Special Needs Learner in Vocational Education.
Wentling, Tim L.; And Others
This resource package contains an administrator's manual and nine instructor guides designed to assist local education agency personnel in the development of functional and systematic procedures for identifying and assessing the needs of special students enrolled in vocational education programs. The administrator's manual provides a description of the three-phase identification and assessment system and suggests procedures for implementation and evaluation. The first instructor's guide presents a description of the system and briefly describes how the information offered in Guides 2-9 fits together to provide a workable structure for the continuous assessment of student needs and progress in vocational education. The remaining eight instructor guides provide guidelines for the following activities: identifying students with special needs (Guide #2); assessing the student's present level(s) of performance (Guide #3); preparing an individualized vocational plan (Guide #4); using the training plan in concurrent work-education programs (Guide #5); assessing vocational skill development (Guide #6); monitoring the student's individualized vocational plan (Guide #7); conducting student follow-up (Guide #8); and conducting employer follow-up (Guide #9). Guides 2-9 also include sample reports and related forms. (BM)
