Toward the Growth of an Integrated Set of Management Information Systems, with Special Emphasis on Short-Range Planning, Long-Range Planning, and Program Evaluation.
Proger, Barton B.
Highlights of the findings of eleven program evaluation and planning committees within the division of special education in Pennsylvania and options in the future implementation of each program area are summarized. The committee had the following purposes: (1) to revise the structure of long range and short range planning within the division of special education (DSE), (2) to revise the structure of evaluation within the DSE, and (3) to develop mechanisms for refining (1) and (2). Committees were designed to devise a set of processes to solve specific problems through examination of the general planning process, the specific needs assessment procedures, outside planning inputs, and child oriented data concerns. The major portion of the document contains appended material on such topics as the short range planning model for the physically handicapped, district needs assessment recommendations from the classroom hearing impaired program, guidelines for outside program evaluation consultants from the itinerant hearing impaired program, and an example of programwide student performance data collection from the gifted program.
