The Improvement of Occupational Education in Maryland: A Progress Report, Fiscal Year 1989.
Hunter, Jean E.
An assessment is provided of the progress of Maryland's Joint Coordinating Committee for Occupational Education Programs in developing a systematic procedure for the evaluation of the quality of occupational programs in Maryland. After presenting the 1976 resolution which established the joint committee, a project summary for fiscal year 1989 is provided. The summary explains the procedures used to acheive the following objectives: (1) to gather and report statewide data on credit enrollment, degree recipients, graduate follow-up, leaver follow-up, employer follow-up, discipline cost analysis, continuing education, and programs; (2) to run the State Board for Community Colleges Program Data Monitoring System (PDMS) and review each community college career program by June 15, 1989; and (3) to publish an in-depth evaluation of 50 community college programs and a statewide evaluation of associate degree General Studies programs. The report includes tables identifying the program areas designated for evaluation between 1978 and 1988, and a list of programs designed for qualitative evaluation in 1989. Guides for using the PDMS and for using information to support instructional program evaluation are appended. (JMC)
