PROE: Program Review in Occupational Education. Handbook and Instrumentation. Michigan Community Colleges.
Michigan State Board of Education, Lansing.
Designed for use by Michigan community colleges wishing to conduct a self-study of their occupational programs, this manual provides step-by-step instructions and instrumentation for implementing the Program Review in Occupational Education (PROE) model. PROE is a component of the Michigan Community College Occupational Education Evaluation System (MCCOEES). An initial overview describes PROE, explains how it works, and discusses the additional option of an outside validation team's visit. The next section details the steps involved in a PROE self-study: (1) advance planning, which includes steps such as identifying programs and participants to be involved and events to be scheduled; (2) orientation for self-study participants; (3) completion of PROE questionnaires by faculty, students, and advisory committee members; (4) tabulation and analysis of data to create a program profile; (5) preparation of a written report; and (6) development of a college action plan. The validation visit is described in the next section, which focuses on the selection of the site visit validation team, preparation for the team visit, the validation visit, and the team's written report. The bulk of the manual consists of appendices, which include a suggested schedule and sample procedures for PROE self-studies; an agenda for the orientation meeting; a press release; PROE questionnaires; a suggested report format; and other relevant forms and guidelines.
