Program Evaluators Handbook: Developing Solutions.
Clark, Richard; Rosenbach, John
Accountability is an outgrowth of rising demands by legislators and taxpayers that programs do actually achieve what they purport to achieve. This handbook is one of six summaries of workshops (see TM 000 138) on the development of solutions for evaluating the effectiveness of educational programs under ESEA Title III at all levels within the state of New York. The first part considers the sources from which solutions might emerge and the translation of ideas into operating programs. Attention then focuses on the analysis of proposed solutions that may show positive effects, as contrasted with those that seem appealing but have little chance of making a real difference. The task of making solutions more relevant to objectives is approached in the reporting of sources of exemplary and innovative programs, relating proposed programs to theory, and the questions to consider in program implementation. An appendix includes the various exercises that were presented; a brief summary, where appropriate, of some of the responses obtained; and an outline of the specific chronology followed during the workshops. Although funded by Title III, the content of the workshop sessions is considered appropriate for use with other Titles and large program evaluative problems. (TA)
