Program Evaluation. Handbooks for Experience-Based Career Education.
Owens, Tom; Haen, Joseph
This is one of a set of five handbooks compiled by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory which describes the processes for planning and operating a total Experience-Based Career Education (EBCE) program. Processes and material are those developed by the original EBCE model--Community Experiences in Career Education or (CE)2. The area of operations to which this handbook is devoted is evaluation. It contains two basic parts. The "Overview" sets the background for understanding EBCE evaluation and how it relates to other elements of the program. A glossary of key evaluation EBCE terms used is provided. "Steps to Follow" organizes the evaluation process into a sequence of steps. The check list which begins the section provides a useful guideline. Each step in the check list is keyed to a portion of the following narrative, which supplies details and discussion for each point. Appendixes contain supplementary materials. A reproducible materials section, amounting to approximately one-half of the handbook, presents evaluation instruments which may be duplicated and used in evaluating EBCE programs. An index is also appended. (YLB)
