Educational Outcomes and Indicators for Individuals at the Post-School Level.
Ysseldyke, James E.; And Others
This guide presents a model for evaluation of educational outcomes appropriate for use with all students (with and without disabilities). It addresses specific post-school outcomes, associated indicators, and possible sources of data for the indicators. The model identifies seven measurable outcome domains and three to five outcomes per domain. The seven domains are as follows, with sample outcomes in parentheses: (1) presence and participation (individual is employed); (2) physical health (individual makes healthy lifestyle choices); (3) responsibility and independence (individual functions independently); (4) contribution and citizenship (individual votes and pays taxes); (5) academic and functional literacy (individual demonstrates competence in communication); (6) personal and social adjustment (individual gets along with other people); and (7) satisfaction (individual reports satisfaction with current status). For each of the outcomes, one to seven possible indicators are then identified (for example, percent of individuals in the workforce). Finally, steps toward identifying sources of data for indicators are suggested, with such examples as informed respondent interviews, individual surveys, observation records, parent reports, and supervisor ratings.
