The Preliminary Georgia Evaluation, Planning & Budgeting Model: A Handbook of Suggested Management Procedures.
Georgia State Univ., Atlanta.
This handbook is intended as a management resource for postsecondary and adult vocational education programs. Its uses include assessment of the effectiveness of current programs; identification of the need for new or expanded programs; development of an action plan for initiation, improvement, expansion, or termination of programs; and the translation of those plans into budget projections. Section I discusses the advantages of an evaluation, planning, and budgeting system and describes the essential characteristics of an effective system. Section II provides an overview of the three components of the model: evaluation, planning, and budgeting. A summary overview of suggested annual timelines is included. Sections III, IV, and V discuss more fully suggested procedures for implementing pre-planning activities, evaluation, planning, and budgeting. The final section focuses on repeating the cycle and improving the process. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the handbook, include current state-adopted standards for program categorization; specific definitions, data sources, instruments, and current state-adopted standards for the secondary assessment component; specific definitions of six key indicators, suggested data sources, instruments, and weighted index system for use in the evaluation component for new and expanded programs; and the 113-page evaluation report of the model.
