Conceptual Framework for Revising the Secondary Vocational Education Program Evaluation System. Final Report.
The research project described in this paper was conducted for three purposes: (1) to identify the program evaluation needs of secondary vocational educators in Wisconsin; (2) to identify those components of the state's previous evaluation system that educators wanted to keep; and (3) to develop a conceptual framework for revising Wisconsin's secondary vocational education program evaluation system. Input sessions with Wisconsin vocational educators were held in Menomonie, Madison, Appleton, and Wausau. A total of 34 educators participated. The suggestions from each input session were incorporated into a survey form that was mailed to everyone who signed up for a session. The survey respondents recommended that the self-evaluation, onsite review, and evaluator training components of Wisconsin's previous vocational education evaluation system be retained. They also indicated a need for more flexibility in the evaluation process, additional emphasis on evaluating local plans, and expansion of the evaluation process to include the school-to-work transition program. The conceptual framework developed incorporated systems and total quality management concepts and gave local school districts greater flexibility in selecting evaluation team members and evaluation techniques. (Appended are summaries of the four input sessions, a sample survey form, and lists of the input session and project advisory committee members.) (MN)
