The Use of Title I Evaluation Data in Local Decision-Making--A Federal Perspective.
Anderson, Judith I.; And Others
Following a brief history of the Title I Evaluation and Reporting System (TIERS) and the development of the RMC models and technical assistance centers, plans are described for activities to increase the usefulness of the evaluation data for local decision making. Three major kinds of activities are explained: projects developed by an Evaluation Use Committee; contracts to support state refinements of TIERS; and the continuing development of models appropriate for evaluating other Title I areas, particularly pre-second grade programs. The Evaluation Use Committee is engaged in producing materials on formative and summative evaluation which will be disseminated through literature reviews, workshops for state and local education agency evaluators and administrators, case studies, suggestions for evaluators, and an annotated bibliography. Contracts to support state refinement of TIERS are divided into four categories: improvement of data collection and analysis activities; development and dissemination of new materials; projects related to testing and evaluation methods; and a miscellaneous category. Materials and strategies suitable for improving and evaluating pre-second grade Title I programs are also being developed for dissemination. (MH)
