Project for the Evaluation of Noncollegiate Sponsored Instruction. Final Report.
Moscowitz, John E.; Eveslage, Sonja A.
The Project for the Evaluation of Noncollegiate Sponsored Instruction (PENSI) was designed to: (1) develop and validate a model for the evaluation of educational and training programs found in business and industry, joint apprenticeships, state agencies, or Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) facilities; (2) identify counseling procedures for CETA clients; (3) originate articulation policies with affected two- and four-year institutions; and (4) disseminate results. This final project report begins by examining these four components of the project. It then describes the organizations, programs, and courses evaluated, revealing that the major efforts of PENSI were directed toward public agencies including CETA training institutions. The next section of the report explains how the evaluation/articulation model was developed, applied, and modified. The cost effectiveness of the project is evaluated prior to the concluding analysis of the project and its implications. Extensive appendices comprise the bulk of the report, covering career development center counseling procedures; the policies used by the Southern Illinois University/Carbondale School of Technical Careers (STC) to evaluate noncollegiate learning; STC's project evaluation guide, which includes course descriptions; preliminary results of a survey of Illinois colleges regarding noncollegiate credit; credit recommendations for courses; and results of an articulation agreement.
