Adams, Kay Angona; Walker, Jerry P.
This document is the fourth volume in a set of five Career Education Measurement Handbooks intended to help local education personnel in measurement and evaluation. Divided into thirteen units, this handbook is designed to show how evaluation can help improve the accountability of career education programs. Each unit is written to stand alone, and they are organized into a logical sequence from planning and implementing to using evaluation. An overview of the organization of the handbook precedes the first eight units, which are categorized under the topic Planning Evaluation. These units cover the following elements: purpose, audience, questions, process, staff, responsbility/authority, uniqueness, and planning standards. Unit 9 is included in the section called Implementing the Evaluation and includes an instrument checklist for rating an evaluation instrument against standard criteria. Units 10-13 are organized under the topic of Communicating and Using Evaluation Results. These units cover politics, report standards, dissemination, and use. A selected bibliography is included.
