New Hampshire's Vocational Program Evaluation System. Manual II: Product Evaluation.
Luftig, Jeffrey T.; And Others
The New Hampshire Vocational Program Evaluation System (VPES) is designed to: (1) provide program improvement information; (2) provide information on local program effectiveness to aid in designing improvements; and (3) aid in complying with 1976 federal vocational education legislation. The evaluation system is divided into two components: formative and summative evaluation. The summative evaluation volume is concerned with gathering program improvement data and specific information related to the results of student employment success. The employment evaluation phase is designed to provide answers concerning program graduates, dropouts, and transfers; sex and racial and ethnic origin of each student; length of time each student was enrolled in the program; follow-up on students' additional training, employment status, job history; and students' evaluations of the program; employers' background; and evaluation of students from the program. (Letters used to conduct the followup and forms for the summative evaluation are included). (MH)
