A research utilization laboratory in a comprehensive rehabilitation center by Isabel Pick Robinault( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The icd Research Utilization Laboratory (icd-rul) at the Comprehensive Rehabilitation Center at Catholic University in Washington, D.C. acted as a facilitator for improving management practices of supervisors of vocationally impaired populations. Over a 10-year span, icd-rul developed two National Information Centers for disabled public assistance recipients and program evaluation; innovative service delivery models; and responses to national utilization needs within the areas of its proficiencies. Activities included the collection of manuals and newsletters, monographs, and responses to issues raised by federal and state agency personnel and their support facilities. Training seminars in vocational rehabilitation and on implementation of service delivery models were conducted. During the latter part of its 10th year, icd-rul contributed input on knowledge dissemination for the Long-Range Research Priorities Plan (1980) of the National Institute of Handicapped Research. Recommendations stemming from the project include the following: (1) a viable national utilization network should be established to offer more resources to rehabilitation personnel; (2) change agents in an rul can quickly fill information or procedural gaps; (3) training seminars should be built into the funding of an rul to ensure wider use of information; and (4) a utilization unit should offer options to its users, not solutions, with users having the final choice of what best fits their programs.

Program evaluation : a resource handbook for vocational rehabilitation by Eleanor Carol Bennett( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The handbook for vocational rehabilitation is the result of an effort to review the literature on program evaluation, organize it, and reduce it to usable form. Taking the position that the purposes of program evaluation are to determine what are the best programs and why, to suggest ways to strengthen existing programs, and to suggest new ways to solve problems, the authors propose a model for program evaluation based on the program, its management, and service delivery goals. The model measures effort, effectiveness, efficiency, and quality. Using that assessment as a base, chapter 2 presents concerns relating to program evaluation design. Both the research and systems approach to evaluation are considered, and the collection and analysis of data are examined and discussed with an emphasis on data interpretation. In chapter 3 Robert A. Walker describes an accountability program evaluation requiring three components: goal setting, feedback, and real consequences. Chapter 4 presents a compendium of measures (from the proposed model) in a categorized list of representative indexes with comments on each item. The concluding chapter provides 16 abstracts illustrating program evaluations. A 22-page annotated reading list and 10-page reference list are included. (Ag)
