How to Get JDRP Approval of Career Education Activities.
Hamilton, Jack A.
The purpose of this monograph is to aid practitioners in gaining federal Joint Dissemination Review Panel (JDRP) approval of career education projects. It helps them understand the importance of designing and implementing a sound evaluation from the early stages of the program, alerts them to common errors or omissions that weaken or destroy conclusions that can be drawn from the evaluation results and shows how to avoid them, and explains administrative procedures involved in obtaining JDRP approval. Section 1, on the benefits of JDRP approval, discusses structure of the National Diffusion Network (NDN) and JDRP, problems in career education evaluation, and overcoming those problems. Section 2 contains a checklist giving essential points for local career educators to consider in planning evaluation designs. Each item is discussed. Section 3 provides specific recommendations for the local career educator regarding the preparation and submission of an evaluation report to the JDRP. In section 4 are common questions asked by educators and the answers typically given. Appendixes contain the JDRP submission format, three sample JDRP submissions, and a list of references. Each sample is the exact ten-page report submitted and approved by a unanimous or nearly unanimous vote of the panel. (YLB)
