This document, which is intended for individuals at the state and local levels with responsibility for school-to-work opportunities, focuses on recommended standard procedures for evaluating school-to-work transition programs. In the introduction, the role of evaluation as a critical element in an overall program management strategy is discussed along with the purposes, techniques, and interdependence of process and impact evaluations. Next, eight types of objectives that must be covered by comprehensive school-to-work transition programs are listed, and the use of goals and objectives in process and impact evaluations is discussed. The following aspects of process implementation are explained: implementation of the program model, general challenges to implementation, implementation challenges for school-to-work transition programs, design issues, context issues, strategies for data collection, and analysis and reporting. Examined in the section on impact evaluation are the following issues: outcomes and their measurement, comparisons, degree of implementation and student participation, data collection, and analysis and reporting. In the final section, the tasks entailed in evaluation management are described, and suggestions for evaluation managers are presented. Contains 14 references. (MN)
