Evaluation of Public School Programs.
This article outlines the procedures followed in program evaluation in Pittsburgh public schools. A program design is obtained by asking the field staff a series of specific questions. As the staff interact, problems about the program are resolved. The consensus achieved is the basis for standardization of activities in the field. The next step in evaluation is a panel meeting that brings expert criticism to bear on the program design. When the implicit theory is criticized and the structure is compatible with the design criteria, the information is given back to the program manager. The second stage involves compatibility testing to pinpoint conflicts and congruence testing of actual activity and the program design. (MF)
