Selected Models and Elements of Evaluation for Vocational Educators.
Orlich, Donald C.; Murphy, Ronald R.
The purpose of this manual is to provide vocational educators with evaluation elements and tested models which can assist them in designing evaluation systems. Chapter 1 provides several sets of criteria for inclusion in any general program evaluation. The eleven general areas for which criteria are included are administrative procedures, curriculum design, staff development, articulation and coordination, liaison activities, student-related activities, recruitment and advising, placement and followup, expanded opportunities, facilities and equipment, and evaluation. Chapter 2 discusses some specific educational concepts and techniques which have implications for vocational evaluation, including achievement variables and taxonomies. Chapter 3 addresses the concept of evaluation models. These six models are presented and discussed: Accreditation, Tylerian, CIPP (context, input, process, and product., CSE (Center of the Study of Evalution), Formative and Summative, and Single Subject Design. Chapter 4 focuses on procedures to design a comprehensive evaluation system which includes data collection. Sample charts, tables, grids, and reporting forms are presented. Appendixes provide selected sample instrument formats representing the following categories of program evaluations: student assessment, teacher assessment follow-up, employee surveys, and the general category of evaluation.
