Evaluation Handbook, Volume 2: Guidelines and Practices for Follow-up Studies of Special Populations.
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 classified as special populations. The handbook is a complement to Evaluation Handbook: Guidelines and Practices for Follow-Up Studies of Former Vocational Students, Volume 1 (see Note). Sections 1, 2, and 3 provide a background on evaluation and followup and an overview of special populations which highlights definitional issues and defines the importance of evaluation and followup. Specific titles are Introduction; Evaluation and Follow-Up: Context, Definitions, Models, and Relationships; and Overview of Special Populations. Sections 4, 5, and 6 focus on the procedural steps required in designing, planning, implementing, and using follow-up studies (Issues and Strategies for Follow-Up of Special Populations, Procedures and Practices for Follow-Up Studies, and Using Follow-Up Data and Studies). Where appropriate, citations are made to Volume 1 and information or textual material is taken from that document to support this volume. Other sections include a glossary, annotated bibliography, and appendixes including sample materials and follow-up questionnaires, forms, and interview guides. (YLB)
