Implementation of the California Community Colleges Occupational Education Program Evaluation System. Summary of Activities Performed to Provide Support Services.
Wright, Calvin E.; Kim, Yungho
As part of an effort to make the system for the evaluation of California community colleges' occupational education programs more relevant and efficient, a project was undertaken to provide the coordination and support services necessary to accomplish this revision. The primary objective of the project was to involve college practitioners, research and evaluation specialists, and business/industry representatives in redesigning and field testing the Occupational Education Evaluation System. More specific objectives were to facilitate: (1) development of the instruments and procedures required for the revised evaluation system; (2) assessment of the reliability and validity of the instruments used; (3) development of an evaluation system insuring the involvement of local program advisory committees and the maximum coordination with the colleges' accreditation process; (4) implementation of data collection, processing, and analysis procedures; and (6) assessment of the performance of the redesigned evaluation system. The accomplishment of these objectives involved providing support for the Advisory Committee for Evaluation and Research, conducting a formative assessment of the redesigned system, assisting in designing and implementing data processing procedures, and assisting in the development of statewide reports of the evaluation. Discussion on project accomplishments and recommendations are included. Among the appendices are sample evaluation forms, evaluation results, data tables, and guidelines for statewide occupational education advisory committees. (Author/EJV)
