Participant Evaluation of UCEA Urban Simulation Materials and Workshops.
Blough, John A.
One of the major program goals of the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) is the design, development, and production of a series of simulation materials for the preservice and inservice training of urban educational administrators. This paper presents evaluative information regarding the Janus Junior High Principalship Simulation, the first simulation to be completed. The school is an actual inner-city junior high school located in Monroe City, North Columbia. Components of the urban simulation (URBSIM) project are listed. Data collected both from participants in brief introductory dissemination institutes and from those who participated in full-length training workshops are presented in evaluations of selected components of the Janus URBSIM materials. The study indicated that the current UCEA dissemination strategy of introducing simulation materials by means of university-sponsored institutes and of collecting materials evaluation data at those institutes is an effective dissemination strategy.
