Project VOC-AIM. Vocational Assessment of Students with Special Needs. Final Report.
Odessa Coll., TX.
The purpose of this project was to develop and disseminate a manual that provides school personnel with help in developing programs of vocational assessment that are useful for handicapped students. The project was developed to fill a need for a vocational assessment manual for implementation with handicapped students in the public schools. An advisory committee was selected to provide guidance to the project. The committee was composed of a representative group of persons from vocational assessment, special education, graduate studies in vocational evaluation, teachers, and the Task Force on Vocational Assessment from the Texas Education Agency. The advisory committee was responsible for reviewing plans for the manual, aiding in the selection of exemplary vocational assessment programs for site visits, reviewing drafts, and evaluating the manual. Following the creation of the advisory committee, the project staff reviewed vocational assessment instruments, reviewed and synthesized all available material, visited sites of exemplary programs, and wrote and produced the manual. The manuals were disseminated at three workshops conducted by the project staff. The workshops were used to present the manual, to give the participants an overview of vocational rehabilitation, and to explain the relationship of the evaluation process to the Texas Education Agency.
