Guidelines for Evaluating Secondary Vocational Education Programs for Special Populations.
Axelrod, Valija M.; And Others
This publication offers 10 major policy recommendations for improving the evaluation of secondary vocational education programs for special populations and ultimately the programs themselves. In the 10 sections following an introduction, each of the policy areas is introduced by a brief overview. A policy recommendation is then made along with a brief rationale and overview of potential benefits. The 10 recommendations are concerned with stakeholder involvement, context analysis, problem delineation, multiple goals, evaluation focus, process and product evaluations, multiple methods of evaluation, evaluation utilization, continuous evaluation, and managing the evaluation. An appendix lists characteristics of effective secondary vocational education programs for special populations. (YLB)
