A System for Evaluating the Performance of ESEA Title I Technical Assistance Centers.
Fetler, Mark E.; Estes, Gary D.
The results of the experience of a Technical Assistance Center (TAC) for three months with a system for classifying and recording actual and planned tasks and activities are described and discussed. The area covered by this report includes 15 states in 3 geographic regions. Staff days planned and actually spent and trips planned and spent are reported for each region and for each state. Percent of staff field time actually spent is reported for four foci: assisting in meeting reporting requirements, minimizing error, planning, and use of evaluation results. The number of TAC contacts is listed for 20 categories of providing information and three categories of obtaining information. There is a discussion of ways in which this information might be used to assist in planning and managing the activities in a TAC. Several purposes are listed for which these data may be useful. (CTM)
