Management Emphases in the Installation of an Evaluation Staff for Federally-Funded Projects in a Large City.
Norton, Daniel P.
Training in design and test development may not be of much help in dealing with the evaluation of Federally funded projects in a large city school system. Planning and carrying out evaluation in a large urban school system requires that much skill and time be spent on typically managerial pursuits. Therefore, a specialist in evaluation and research management is highly desirable. His duties should be mostly concerned with strategic issues such as management control, strategic planning, operational control, and the necessary person-to-person interactions. Such a person is likely to be less than adequate in dealing with technical evaluation issues. However, he should head up the evaluative effort, with a specialist in research design and test development assigned to carry out the actual evaluation. (TT)
