Strategies for Linking Planning and Evaluation in Vocational and Technical Education

D. E. Elson, J. D. Oliver, D. C. Strickland

Comprehensive evaluation and substantive planning in vocational education are not clearly linked in most states. Research shows that state-level planning and evaluation can be facilitated by clear leadership and policy focus, administrative commitment, interagency cooperation, some form of regional administrative structure, planning/evaluation and data collection systems, and comprehensive programs. This document presents a literature review/synthesis, two national surveys, and case studies.
