Program Evaluation at HEW: Research versus Reality. Part 2: Education.
Abert, James G., Ed.
Intended for both the student and the practitioner of evaluation, this book describes the state of the practice of program evaluation. Its focus is mainly institutional. Results of evaluation studies are of secondary importance. An introductory chapter written by the editor discusses evaluation at the Office of Education from 1967 through 1973. The remainder of the book consists of eight case studies, as follows: (1) Evaluation of "Sesame Street": Two Case Studies, by Gerry Ann Bogatz; (2) Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Compensatory Education Funded by Title I, ESEA, by Kenneth F. Gordon and Barbara J. A. Gordon; (3) Evaluation and Evaluative Research in an Urban Bilingual Program, by Robert J. Cahill and Joseph J. Foley; (4) Migrant Education, by Jack Harbeston; (5) The OEO Experiment in Educational Performance Contracting, by Horace W. Ray and others; (6) Evaluation with an Experimental Design: The Emergency School Assistance Program, by Robert L. Crain and Robert L. York; (7) Teacher Corps, by Robert H. Crosby; and (8) Evaluations of Upward Bound for the Office of Economic Opportunity. (Author/CTM)
