Kliza, Nancy; And Others
This report will be of greatest interest for persons involved in adult high school completion programs, especially those teachers, counselors and administrators who are interested in making the students' educations relevant to their daily living. Through Project PLANE, a comprehensive assessment system and a coordinated referral system was developed in the Adult Basic Education and high school completion programs in the Wayne-Westland (MI) Community Schools. The project was innovative in that it provided a thorough assessment of student academic, vocational, and career abilities and interests, utilizing a variety of evaluation procedures tailored to the individual. For the first time in Michigan a system of vocational evaluation based on work samples (VITAS) was used to supplement traditional aptitude testing. A coordinated referral and enrollment system was developed to refer students to many program components simultaneously. Thus, students were able to acquire academic and vocational skills and support services in a sequential expedited manner creating a more employable individual. Project PLANE met its overall objectives. Strategies used to reach these objectives and recommendations for the implementation of new procedures are discussed. (Author/CM)
