The Development of an Instrument for Assessing the Reaction of Participants and Their Supervisors to the Effectiveness of Workforce Training Programs in the Mississippi Delta.
Taylor, Marjorie
In 1994, the Mississippi legislature enacted the Workforce Education Act, Senate Bill 2955, which called for the creation of One-Stop Career Centers affiliated with each community college district. The mission of the One-Stop Career Centers was to provide assessment, training, and placement services to individuals needing training, retraining, and upgrading for local industry. The purpose of this study was to develop an evaluation instrument to assess the effectiveness of workforce training programs provided by these career centers. The study was conducted in two phases. Phase 1 was the development and pilot test of the instrument for recording the reactions of the participants and their supervisors toward the effectiveness of the training programs. Phase 2 of the study consisted of field testing the instrument in two local community college districts. Based on the data collected from the study, it was concluded that the programmatic effectiveness of workforce training programs could be evaluated immediately using the instrument developed for this study; however, the personal effectiveness and the external effectiveness of training programs could not be evaluated immediately using the instrument. (Contains 5 tables, 49 references, and 6 appendices, including the survey instrument.) (KP)
