A Comparison of Four Vocational Evaluation Systems.
Botterbusch, Karl F.
Four commercially available work evaluation systems are compared using a standardized outline: development, organization, work evaluation process, administration, scoring and norms, observation of clients, reporting utility, training in the system, technical considerations, reviewer's summary and comments, address, cost, and references. There are four sections: (1) a brief paper listing factors to be considered in selecting a commercial evaluation battery for such tools as on-the-job evaluations, sheltered employment, work samples, and psychological tests for asessing clients' potential; (2) an explanation of the fourteen major points (criteria) in the outline; (3) a table presenting brief comparison of the four systems on the first ten points (points 11-14 not appropriate to summarize); and (4) more detailed description of each system including reviewer's comments, address, cost, and references. The four systems covered are Comprehensive Occupational Assessment and Training System (COATS), Hester Evaluation System, Micro-TOWER, and Vocational Information and Evaluation Work Samples (VIEWS). Seven older systems are compared in a separate document using the same format (see Note). (JT)
