An Experimental Study of the Effect of Facilitator Services on the Dissemination Process. Case 05-79.
Chitayat, Deanna; And Others
Nine strategies for the dissemination of information on a pre-admission counseling program for mature women are evaluated for their effectiveness in achieving the implementation of the program at 39 colleges. A description of the program and its informative materials is followed by discussions of the methods of program research design, staff training, program planning, location of services, dissemination strategies, and assignment of participating colleges to the strategies. Descriptions of protocols for staff training sessions, planning sessions, and follow-up planning sessions precede evaluations based on data taken from pre-treatment questionnaires, formative evaluation questionnaires, and two post-treatment questionnaires. In addition to 16 tables, a statement of conclusions, and a bibliography, four appendices are included which contain (1) a list of colleges offered the facilitator services and their personal contacts, (2) the letter offering materials and services, (3) evaluation of the instruments used, and (4) samples of implementation plans.
