Abstract: The current system of evaluation being used in Davidson County, North Carolina, for employment-training programs such as the Human Resources Development (HRD) and the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) assume that summative evaluation based on overall outcomes is sufficient for policymakers to use in planning, implementing, and evaluating programs. This research sought to establish the idea that the use of a formative type of evaluation which emphasized process, in combination with summative, would be a more comprehensive approach. More systematic means of assessment and program planning and a redefining of the criteria of success of participants are needed.
