Model Transition Program Research and Evaluation Goals
The Yang-Tan Institute's Model Transition Program (MTP) research
and evaluation team is utilizing the elements of the logic model, as conceptualized
by the Kellogg Foundation (http://www.wkkf.org/ ) and adopted by NIDRR
as a way of understanding and evaluating MTP organizational structure and processes. The logic model identifies:
project goals, measures of effectiveness, supporting activities and supporting resources.
As a result, we have designed all data collection and information dissemination to address the following:
- Quality VR Referrals and successful closures by increasing the number of
youth who are successfully referred to New York�s Vocational Rehabilitation (VR)
system by New York State schools.
- Improved Results, exceeding national standards by increasing the percentage
of youth referred into the VR system that successfully complete an Individualized
Plan for Employment (IPE) and obtain and keep a job.
- Increased Collaboration by examining current and newly developed school and
agency relationships where resources and responsibility are shared in order to
better support the successful transition of students with disabilities.
- Sustained Practice by providing the New York State Education Department with
valuable information received from MTP participants about potentially effective
practices ultimately informing policy development.
