Wisconsin Univ. - Stout, Menomonie. Center for Vocational, Technical and Adult Education.
This report, part of a 5-year evaluation project (fiscal years 1983-87), represents a summary and synthesis of self evaluation data from 45 secondary schools. Each school conducted an extensive vocational program self evaluation, accumulating data from graduates, employers, advisory committee members, staff and current students. On site evaluations were also conducted at 15 schools, thus completing the second, or External Evaluation Phase, of the study. The final phase of the evaluation model will be the utilization of Evaluation Findings. This report is prepared to aid decision makers at local, state, and national levels in planning and assessing vocational education in Wisconsin. The evaluation system focuses on these major components of a vocational program: planning, implementation, evaluation, special needs, and vocational guidance and counseling. Selected findings of the study are presented arranged under the headings of Followup of Graduates, Employer Followup, Student Assessment, Staff Assessment, Advisory Committee Assessment, Parent Assessment, Articulation, and Summary.
