Evaluation of the Stevenson Curriculum Laboratory.
The general goal of this curriculum laboratory, funded under Title I, E.S.E.A., is to be a place where teachers and others can assume an active, personal role in a process of continuous educational development and change in relation to specific instructional problems with which they are dealing. It offers three types of services: information services, materials preparation services, and circulation of audiovisual media. The purpose of this evaluation is to: (a) examine the existing services offered by the Stevenson Curriculum Laboratory to Title I, E.S.E.A. schools in the Detroit Public School System; and, (b) examine the effectiveness of the laboratory in providing services to the teacher and administrator by providing those media and materials which are either too specialized or too costly to be widely available in individual buildings. To obtain the necessary data for drawing conclusions relative to the evaluation of the Project, two survey instruments were administered: one to 200 teachers, student teachers, and paraprofessionals, and the other to 60 regional administrators, principals, and assistant principals. The emphasis of the evaluation is upon an assessment by the participants of the various aspects of their curriculum laboratory use and training. (Author/JM)
