EVALUATION ISSUES IN PROGRAMS FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN, THE USE OF NON-TEST PROCEDURES.
LEVINE, MYRNA S.; MACLENNAN, BERYCE W.
THE DIMENSIONS OF PROGRAM EVALUATION ARE OUTLINED, SOME NON-TEST METHODS WHICH CAN BE USED ARE DESCRIBED, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF MONITORING AND CONTROLLING THE INTERVENTION ARE STRESSED. THE IMPORTANCE OF TEAMWORK BETWEEN EVALUATORS AND INTERVENTIONISTS IS ILLUSTRATED AND THE VALUE OF SUCH AN APPROACH IN FURTHERING THE CLEAR CONCEPTUALIZATION AND REFINEMENT OF PROGRAMS IS DISCUSSED. SOME PROBLEMS RELEVANT TO PROGRAMS FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN ARE EXAMINED. THE POTENTIAL CAPACITIES OF DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN ARE NOT REFLECTED BY PAST AND PRESENT PERFORMANCE. IN EVALUATING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INTERVENTION, THE REACTIONS OF THE ENVIRONMENT AS WELL AS THE RESPONSES OF THE SUBJECT MUST BE EXAMINED. UNLESS FAVORABLE CHANGES IN THE INDIVIDUAL ARE SUPPORTED BY THE ENVIRONMENT, SUCH CHANGES ARE UNLIKELY TO BE MAINTAINED. (WR)
