MANAGER (Michigan Analysis Network and General Evaluation Report) Handbook.
Grand Rapids Junior Coll., MI. Office of Curriculum Planning and Evaluation.
The Michigan Analysis Network and General Evaluation Report (MANAGER) was developed as a component of the overall Michigan Community College Occupational Education Evaluation System (MCCOEES). Developed for use by college presidents and occupational program administrators and instructors, the handbook describes a six-step process for collecting, analyzing, synthesizing, and interpreting data which can be implemented by a team of individuals as part of a self-evaluation of occupational programs. Following introductory material providing background on the MCCOEES, and its components (i.e., the Michigan Student Information System, the Program Review in Occupational Education system; and the Michigan Community Colleges' Activities Classification Structure), the handbook presents an overview of the MANAGER plan and suggests ways of preparing to implement the system. Next, the six steps of the MANAGER plan are described: (1) MANAGER formatting, which involves collecting data and placing them in a format; (2) reviewing the formatted data against a set of standards; (3) generating questions and concerns from the review; (4) obtaining answers to the questions from key personnel; (5) identifying, prioritizing, and selecting alternative actions that might address the concerns; and (6) monitoring and documenting the implemented actions to determine results. The final section discusses the possible uses of MANAGER. Extensive appendices provide sample forms and instruments and field test results. (LL)
