Educational Quality Indicator Program (EQuIP). An Adult and Community Educator Training Manual for Administrators, Teachers and Volunteers.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Workforce Development.
This self-paced, individualized manual provides guidance in evaluating the quality of adult education programs. The manual contains state-adopted indicators of program quality for Florida. Each of the indicators requires from 1 to 1-1/2 hours of review; a sample checklist or evaluation sheet is provided at the end of each indicator to allow for self-assessment. The manual includes a quality indicator workbook that identifies each of the quality indicators along with the prescribed "measured by" indices. Each quality indicator section includes the following components: (1) focus area (educational gains, educational outcomes, retention, recruitment, program orientation, program planning and evaluation, curriculum and instruction, support services, staff development, and technology integration); (2) indicators of quality for each focus area; (3) descriptors (specific guideline statements that provide clarity for educators on how to address and attain compliance); (4) modules (information on why to measure the descriptor, how to determine where a program stands in this area, and how a program can improve in this area); and (5) resources (included at the end of each module and in a separate more in-depth bibliography). In addition to the quality indicator workbook for the general adult education population, the manual contains quality indicator workbooks for adult secondary, adults with disabilities, English as a second language, General Educational Development Test preparation, vocational preparation, and Volunteers in Literacy programs.
