Training Opportunities Partnership Program. Final Performance Report, Evaluation Report, and Methodology Guide.
Greenville Technical Coll., SC.
These three documents (final performance report, evaluation report, methodology guide) are products of a project through which the Career Advancement Center provided workplace literacy services to two industries in Greenville, South Carolina. The final performance report discusses achievement of objectives, specifically employee assessment, training program development, literacy training, offering of support services, establishment of evaluation systems, evaluation of training impact, and evaluation of project methodology. Other contents include a copy of a Skill Rating packet, a sample showing the compiled data at one classroom site, project schedule, and tables showing participant numbers and characteristics. The final evaluation report describes the purpose of the evaluation, the project, and the evaluation method, a modified version of the Context-Input-Process-Product model. These findings are reported: strong evidence that programs implemented and delivered services to a minimum of 150 workers at each industry site; only a moderate amount of evidence of successful program implementation and offering of additional services; and no evidence of development of a training methodology meeting specific workplace needs. The methodology guide contains a list of project goals and activity flowchart. These steps in program implementation are explained: needs analysis or job task analysis, curriculum development, employee orientation, assessment, training, support services, and training completion.
