Equity Evaluation: A Methods Guidebook. Methods of Measuring the Effects of Staff Efforts To Reduce Sex Equity Bias, and Stereotyping in Public Education. Equity Report 103.
Vetter, Louise; Drier, Harry, Ed.
This guidebook outlines specific methods of measuring the effects of staff efforts to reduce sex equity bias and stereotyping in vocational education programs as stipulated by the 1990 Perkins Act. Following an introduction, chapter 2 covers the requirements of the 1990 Perkins Act regarding sex equity programs and vocational education programs for single parents, displaced homemakers, and single pregnant women. The process of evaluating vocational education sex equity programs, including the use of sex equity core standards and performance measures, is examined in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 presents a series of sample tools (checklists, quizzes, a rating scale, group activity, and barrier identification and action planning tool) for vocational educators to use in planning and/or evaluating sex equity programs. Chapter 5 details a possible local training workshop for training vocational educators in evaluating sex equity programs and presents an action plan for assessing outcomes. Chapter 6 is an annotated listing of 13 evaluation resources. Included in the guide's three appendixes are a list of state personnel responsible for sex equity, pertinent excerpts from the final regulations for the 1990 Perkins Act, and an overview of postsecondary measures and standards. Twenty-one exhibits and 27 references are provided. (MN)
