A Model for Occupational Education Program Improvement through Evaluation.
Glose, Gerald P.
This is a two-component evaluation model designed to improve occupational education programs and improve the process through which they are evaluated. The conceptual component presents a theoretical overview of the evaluation scheme, explains how the procedures of evaluation fit into the planning process, and outlines a framework for implementing the second component. The operational component details the specific methods to be used in performing the evaluation, suggests data collection methodologies and links the information generated to the planning functions. This component is in the form of a user manual and contains criterion models which address nine evaluation criteria areas: (1) curriculum; (2) facilities, equipment and supplies; (3) employer satisfaction; (4) student demand; (5) student performance; (6) student satisfaction; (7) cost-benefit analysis; (8) program articulation; and (9) ancillary services. Each of the criterion modules is made up of four sections: rationale, flowscript of activities, job outline, and worksheet. (Each module is designed to be independent of the rest, so that users may select as few or as many of the criteria as are relevant to their institutional situation.) (LRA)
