A Guide for Evaluation of Technical and Vocational Education Curricula. Studies on Technical and Vocational Education 3.
This book is the third in a series aiming to promote international exchange of ideas, experiences, and studies relating to technical and vocational education. Intended to assist educators in the evaluation of vocational education curricula, the guide is designed for both experienced evaluators and novices. Section I describes the purpose, objectives, organization, and concepts upon which the guide is based. Section II presents procedures for developing an evaluation plan, including planning process, example plan, evaluation scope, program description, measures and designs, data concerns, and budget. Section III explains information requirements for different kinds of evaluations. A series of data collection worksheets are included. Each is designed to collect information about a specific curriculum component--students, teachers, instructional processes, and facilities. Section IV describes how to go about administering and supervising an evaluation. The five major functions--planning, organizing, staffing, activating, and controlling--are described. Section V contains four case studies illustrating evaluation of technical and vocational education. Each study addresses a major curriculum concern--planning, materials, and program effects on in-school and former students. Five worksheets are provided so that the reader can prepare an evaluation plan for a case study. Section VI contains 26 references, a glossary, and example evaluation report. (YLB)
