Evaluation of an Inservice Program: Summary Report of Intensive Training and Technical Assistance.
Young, Marsha; And Others
The paper reports on the formative evaluation of a career education national inservice training program for educators in 29 schools and programs for the hearing impaired. The inservice was divided into two stages: an intensive training workshop for administrators, teachers, and counselors; and technical assistance on goal planning and milestone reporting systems. Among results of the workshop evaluation were that participants' self reported level of participation was rated good to very good, with ratings tending to increase across successive workshops; participant posttest scores were significantly higher than pretests for three of the four workshop audiences; and media supporting the workshop strategies were very effective with a mixed deaf and hearing audience. Technical assistance evaluation covered dissemination, consultation, and networking aspects. Effective teamwork and a start at documenting a comprehensive career education plan were reported by the schools in each region during the 6 month period after intensive training. (CL)
