Program Evaluation: A Sample Plan for Select Community-Based Career Education Programs. Project CAST.
Charles County Board of Education, La Plata, MD. Office of Special Education.
The booklet describes the conceptual approach and operation of the evaluation plan used by Project CAST (Community and School Together), a community-ased career education program for handicapped students. Three levels of evaluation are proposed for providing data for both formative and summative evaluation; these levels are: (1) effort evaluation, (2) performance evaluation, and (3) outcome evaluation. Sample evaluation strategies described include summative evaluation of student outcomes, such as acquisition of life skills and basic skills; summative evaluation of the impact of other program activities on the community (specifically the resource persons and parents); and formative evaluation of program process objectives. The booklet concludes with sample instruments, including the interview protocol and questionnaires for resource persons, the parent opinion survey, and the student survey and interview protocol. (CL)
