Summary

To evaluate a secondary level occupational education program in New York State, the author used a system termed LOPE (Local Occupational Program Evaluation), which began with the development of a statement of philosophy and measureable objectives based on teacher and administrator input. A questionnaire based on the objectives was administered to graduating students and to the same students six months after graduation to evaluate the performance of the school and its staff in meeting the established objectives. One of the objectives was: Upon completion of an occupational program, 65% of the students will rate the experience satisfying. Students responded to the statement: My experiences in the specialization which I pursued while in the occupational education program were: (Responses ranged from "very satisfying" to "not at all satisfying.") Data obtained during the two-phase administration of the instrument indicated that five of the seven stated objectives were met. It was concluded that the LOPE system, which measures the "products" (graduates) of a program, can be useful for accountability because it uses measureable objectives. Resource materials, including a position paper by the author, data collection forms, and transparency masters on LOPE, are appended to the report. (LMS)
