Innovative Practices in New England Schools.
New England Educational Assessment Project.
The New England Educational Assessment Project was designed to conduct assessments of activities which provide resources for decision-making focused upon current state and regional problems in education. Nine innovative practices that may indicate the nature of educational change in the 1970's were selected from the many excellent projects in New England. Each State Department of Education was requested to submit projects for consideration. The criteria for selection by the assessment committees included: evidence of deliberate planning, an awareness of existing programs, utilization of resource people, efficiency, nature of the change, potential impact of the strategies on the recipients, and the probability of adoption. These have been carefully examined by qualified teams. On-site project visitation and intensive group and individual interviews were used to gather data on each project from project directors, administrators, teachers, and pupils in each school visited. Studies by Richard Carlson and Owen Kieman, and Henry Brickell on educational change processes were used as guides. The projects are described and evaluated in this report as a resource for those concerned with innovations in school administration and organization, curriculum, and the use of technology in the classroom.
