The West Virginia Placement Program Manual; For Planning, Implementing and Evaluating School Placement Programs.
West Virginia Research Coordinating Unit for Vocational Education, Huntington.
This manual is designed to provide school personnel with the information necessary to plan, implement, and evaluate a school-based placement program. Chapters 1-3 introduce the material, discuss the placement program structure, and address manual use. Chapters 4-6 focus on one of the three stages of planning, implementation, and evaluation and are written in outline form. Within chapters 4 (planning) and 6 (evaluation) are found program subgoals, under which are coordinated processes, activities, and resources. Chapter 5 (implementation) is divided into student competencies, under which are coordinated learner outcomes, activities of staff, staff competencies needed, and resources. Resources/forms directly follow the chapter to which they relate. Three appendixes amount to approximately one-third of the manual. Appendix A is a calendar listing all processes and activities in the order in which they appear in the manual. For planning and evaluation processes months of the year are given; for implementation activities, grade level and semesters are given. Appendix B provides examples of how to use the learner outcomes and activities to develop student competency measurement instruments. Appendix C lists all of the resources identified throughout the manual and addresses of distributors and sources of the materials. (YLB)
