1. The Guba and linkoln (1981), principles of merit and worth best define curriculum evaluation in TVET
2. And eclectic approach to evaluation, one that draws from the strengths of several different models (using common emphasis along with insights generated from analyzing other models) are most effective for TVET curriculum evaluation.
3. (i) Can be implemented with out making inordinate demands upon district resources.
(ii) Can be applied to all levels of curriculum programs of study, field of study, course of study.
(iii) Makes provision for assessing all significant aspect of curriculum-the written, the taught, the supported, the tested and learned curricula
(iv) Make useful distinctions between merit (intrinsic value) and worth (value for a given context)
(v) Is responsive to the special concerns of district stakeholders and is able to provide them with the data they need for decision making.
(vi) Is goal oriented, emphasizing objectives and outcomes.
(vii) Is sensitive to make appropriate provision for assessing unintended effects.
(viii) Paid due attention to and make provisions for assessing formative aspects of evaluation.
(ix) Is sensitive to and makes provision for assessing the aesthetic or qualitative aspects of the curriculum.
( x) Is sensitive to and makes provision for assessing the special context for the curriculum
(xi) Makes provision for assessing opportunity cost-the opportunities lost by those studying this curriculum.
(xii) Uses both quantitative and qualitative methods for gathering and analyzing data.
(xiii) Presents findings in report responsive to the special needs of several audiences.
4. To organize learning experiences for effective instruction in TVET, the selected content and experiences need to be organized in a sequential and logical manner that will aid understanding.
5. Effectiveness of learning experiences in TVET can be evaluated by the use of internet enabled assessment tools eg electronic text. such evaluation should be carried out immediately after the training so as to know how well the learners have learned the materials.
6. A field of study can be evaluated using the following processes;
(i) Preparing for the evaluation
(ii) Assessing the context
(iii) Identifying the evaluation issues.
(iv) Developing the evaluation design.
(v) Implementing the evaluation.
7. Effective teaching in TVET can be identified by the measure of the academic growth of its students by carrying out a process evaluation. this requires the analysis of the entire performance and subsequent rating of that performance. This includes what takes place during the process of teaching and learning. Here, the evaluator is interested not only in what the student learnt and do but also in the procedures adopted by the teacher in the delivery of the lessons, teachers/pupils relationships, communication skills and mastery of subjects.
