Short-Term Vocational Evaluation.
Botterbusch, Karl F.
This guide is intended to assist vocational rehabilitation counselors in planning and conducting short-term vocational evaluations of clients. The first section discusses the elements that must be included in a comprehensive vocational evaluation. Next, strategies for conducting a vocational evaluation are explained. The next section, a case study of a one-week vocational evaluation, details the following six steps: initial review of the case, referral questions, selection of evaluation techniques, initial intake interview, plan modification, and exit interview. The fourth section includes descriptions of and materials from three model vocational evaluation programs representing three different settings (a vocational rehabilitation facility, a rehabilitation hospital, and a freestanding evaluation unit). David Van Ningen and Wayne Johansen describe the program at the Mankato Rehabilitation Center, Inc.'s Hamlet Project, Diane Aves and Ken Ogren discuss the vocational evaluation program of the Sister Kenny Institute, and Jeb Kaiser and Al Noll explain the program for vocational evaluation of the Vocational Development Center of the Stout Vocational Rehabilitation Institute. A list of references concludes the guide. Appendixes include an initial interview form; a sample case history; and a chart of useful tests and work samples with information on some or all of the following: significance of test scores, norm groups, test administration, test publisher/source, and Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) codes and specific tasks addressed in the test.
