The document presents a vocational evaluation process based on a diverse mixture of proven principles and practices that have been used in school-based vocational evaluation programs for handicapped students. Following a foreword (part 1), part 2 offers several definitions of vocational evaluation and vocational assessment. Part 3 compares school-based and rehabilitation-oriented vocational evaluation programs in terms of physical facilities, target populations, tools and techniques, goals and objectives, staffing, and enabling legislation. In part 4, tools of vocational evaluation are defined and their applications described. Tools are divided into three categories: situations as tools (on-the-job evaluation, work samples, psychometrics), resource tools (occupational information, referral information), and applied tools (interviewing procedures, observational procedures, reporting procedures, job analysis, learning assessment). The purpose of part 5 is to describe the vocational evaluation process as it typically exists within a Comprehensive Vocational Evaluation Center (CVEC). The CVEC follows an eight step approach: referral/intake, orientation, initial interview, individual evaluation planning, formal testing/feedback, staffing, final report, and follow-up. A sixth part considers the relationship between vocational evaluation and the individualized education program, while part 7 offers a summary of vocational evaluation. Appendixes include a vocational evaluation system outline, a form with suggested guidelines for evaluating work samples, a report titled "The Mobile Unit for Vocational Evaluation," a sample vocational evaluation referral form, an outline for an initial interview, an example of a well-planned and documented referral to an evaluation unit from a field counselor, and a vocational evaluation final report.
