Evaluation Handbook, Volume 1: Guidelines and Practices for Follow-up Studies of Former Vocational Education Students.
Franchak, Stephen J.; Spirer, Janet E.
This handbook for state and local education agencies is intended as a reference to assist in initiating and/or improving follow-up systems or studies of former vocational students. A companion volume focuses on follow-up studies of special populations (see Note). Section 1, which contains information on use of the handbook, also introduces the follow-up study profile around which the handbook is organized. A rationale for doing follow-up studies is presented in section 2, which discusses such related topics as definitions, issues, legislation, and decision making. Sections 3-6 comprise the steps required in designing, planning, implementing, and evaluating a vocational follow-up study or system. Specific titles are Designing and Planning Follow-Up Studies, Procedures and Mechanics for Conducting Follow-Up Studies, Data Analaysis and Reporting Procedures, and Using Follow-Up Data and Studies. These self-contained sections are arranged in chronological order, although interrelated steps/activities may occur simultaneously. Other sections provide a glossary, bibliography, index, and appendixes including follow-up questionnaires and forms and sample materials. (YLB)
