Longitudinal Evaluation of Technical Programs in Community Colleges and Technical Institutes.
Doty, Charles R.
Designed to identify sources for planning longitudinal evaluation strategies, this paper provides an overview and bibliography of resources regarding vocational follow-up and presents a conceptual model for longitudinal program assessment. Introductory material highlights major works in the area of vocational program assessment and summarizes the findings of a 1974 study by W. G. Williams and F. A. Snyder of the goals, quality, and methodology of community college/technical institute follow-up systems. Next, the 39-item bibliography of longitudinal study reports and research guides is presented, based on a 1979-84 review of the ERIC database. Finally, "How to Recognize a Quality Technical Education Program" reviews literature on the problem of program quality in vocational education, identifies criteria for quality, and offers a matrix laying out the factors associated with program quality to facilitate evaluation. A 25-item bibliography of materials published between 1973-79 dealing with vocational/technical program evaluation concludes this paper. (AYC)
