Handbook for a Cooperative Vocational Education Information System.
Leske, Gary W.; Persico, John, Jr.
This handbook outlines an instructor-coordinator information system that is intended to assist cooperative vocational education (CVE) instructors in providing information on the outcomes of their local programs and examining other CVE programs in order to identify ways of strengthening local programs. The program information model involves four major steps: selection of key program outcomes, data collection, analysis of key program outcomes, and information dissemination. Each of these steps is described, and accompanying lists of suggested procedures for accomplishing each step, worksheets, and questionnaires are provided. Also supplied is a timeframe chart that specifies the forms needed, the person responsible for completing the forms, and the major objectives of each of the forms needed at each step of developing and using the information system. Twenty-nine outcome forms, which are designed for use in summarizing information from the questionnaires used in the data collection step and transferring it into the system, are appended. Descriptions and addresses of the publishers of 11 software packages that can be used with the information system are also appended. (MN)
