Vocational Rehabilitation Program Standards Evaluation System. Training Materials. Trainee Handbook.
Baker, Linda Toms; And Others
The Program Standards Evaluation System was developed in response to evaluation requirements in the 1973 Rehabilitation Act. The system includes procedures for using standards data to monitor and evaluate vocational rehabilitation (VR) service outcomes and outputs as well as standards on key procedural issues. This trainee handbook has been prepared for persons receiving training in the use of the Rehabilitation Services Administration's Vocational Rehabilitation Program Standards Evaluation System and in collection of information for performance and procedural standards. The materials have been designed to be used in conjunction with verbal and visual presentation materials. This handbook contains an introduction to the Program Standards Evaluation System and its uses. Organized into five chapters, it is intended to provide the reader with an overview of the system's individual components as well as the system's overall logic. Individual chapters provide fuller detail on the conceptualization and implementation of specific aspects of the system. The five chapters cover the following topics: (1) an overview of the Program Standards System; (2) computing and presenting the eight performance standards; (3) administering the closure and followup surveys; (4) the five procedural standards; and (5) an introduction to the modified case review schedule.
