As phase 1 of a Florida system for evaluation of secondary and postsecondary vocational education programs, a set of materials was developed to assist local education agencies (LEAs) in planning for and conducting locally directed evaluations. Objectives were to develop guidelines and procedures, instrumentation, strategies, materials, and activities for use by LEA personnel; to conduct field tests; and to revise the materials for dissemination by the state department. Based on the guidance of a steering/advisory committee with input from practitioners, the project staff reviewed and analyzed materials and procedures from other states and developed prototypes for eight components: (1) organizing for data-based locally directed evaluation, (2) comparison of program output with community occupational needs, (3) assessing student career interests, (4) facilities and equipment evaluation, (5) analysis of the utilization of community resources, (6) evaluation of occupational competencies, (7) evaluation of instructional personnel, and (8) assessment of local budget policy for support of vocational instructional programs. Each component was field-tested and materials revised for dissemination. Seven additional components are planned, based on the field test results. (Each of the eight components and an overview guide, CE 011 609, are available separately.) (JT)
