Vocational Education Demonstrations: Measuring Impact and Improving Effectiveness.
Fleischman, Howard L.; Willette, JoAnne L.
The purpose of this monograph is to assist project personnel in improving and measuring the effectiveness of vocational education demonstration projects. The first of four chapters discusses how the monograph is organized and why and how it was developed. Chapter 2 presents an evaluation model containing criteria, standards, and documentation required for presenting evidence of project effectiveness. Chapter 3 discusses the roles of various individuals in improving project effectiveness and in collecting the documentation specified in the evaluation model. Within chapter 3 the demonstration project is divided into a pre-grant period for needs assessment and proposal development; a grant period for project start-up, implementation, and dissemination; and a post-grant period for collection of evidence of impact and utilization. Within each of these periods, the roles of planners, implementers, evaluators, disseminators, and monitors in improving effectiveness are discussed. Following chapter 3, a summary and a list of references are presented. Appended material includes a glossary and a set of proposal review criteria which may be used by funding agencies in reviewing demonstration project proposals. (LRA)
