Pritz, Sandra; And Others
This guidebook is designed to assist Comprehensive Employment and Training Act prime sponsors in obtaining the maximum benefit for their participants and themselves from follow-up and follow-through activities. An introduction explains the purposes of the guidebook and overviews follow-up and follow-through. After an overview of the essential tasks for follow-up, action planning guidelines are given for each of the seven tasks specified: (1) identify purposes of follow-up activities, (2) design follow-up strategy to correspond with purposes identified, (3) decide on procedures to carry out the strategy, (4) develop aids for data collection, (5) collect data, (6) analyze data, and (7) communicate information for use according to identified purposes. The next section gives an overview and the related guidelines for the four essential tasks for follow-through: identify areas for follow-through activities, identify available means of participant reinforcement, determine effective procedures for delivery of follow-through services, and implement procedures. Reference materials contained in appendixes include sample follow-up questionnaire, strategies to increase confidence in data collected by mailed questionnaires, and information on principles of interviewing, descriptive statistics, graphic presentations, follow-through staff, work maturity skills, and implementation techniques.
