Harrington, Lois G.; And Others
Designed to provide pre- and inservice vocational education administrators with background information and hands-on experiences for acquiring the skills necessary to direct a program evaluation, this competency-based learning module contains an introduction and four sequential learning experiences. Each learning experience consists of an overview, required and optional learning activities, a self-check section, and a series of model answers for use with the self-check section. Topics covered in the first learning experience are the purpose of program evaluation, evaluation methods, and cost effectivess/benefit analysis of postsecondary vocational programs. Developing evaluation plans, preparing to implement an evaluation plan, and program evaluation skills for administrators are among the areas examined in the second learning experience. Discussed next are using evaluation data, presenting evaluation reports, and developing and evaluating conclusions and recommendations. The final learning experience involves actually directing a program evaluation. (Related competency-based vocational education administrator modules covering curriculum development, improving instruction, program promotion, staff development, and student recruitment and admissions are available separately through ERIC--see note.)
