A study was conducted to develop a process evaluation model for Bilingual Vocational Programs (BVPs) in Florida. Literature was reviewed that concerned state evaluation of general, vocational, and bilingual vocational education. This information and information from interviews and correspondence on these areas were used to develop a questionnaire that identified the additional needs of BVPs as compared with traditional vocational education programs. The questionnaire was also designed to identify standards and criteria, which, when met, would indicate that effective bilingual/vocational education (BVE) and/or vocational education for the limited English proficiency students was being provided. New York City BVP instructors and administrators participated in the pilot test of the Bilingual Vocational Instructional Program Review Component (BVIPRC) which contained those standards and criteria identified. Based on the Vocational Education Instructional Program Review, the BVIPRC includes a self evaluation component and on-site review. (A copy of the BVIPRC is provided.) The revised BVIPRC was field tested with BVE personnel in Florida. A total of 69 BVE staff participated in the study--35 completed the questionnaire and pilot tested the BVIPRC, 34 participated in BVIPRC field testing and evaluation. (Appendixes include questionnaire materials and BVIPRC field test and pilot test materials.) (YLB)
