Pyecha, John N.; And Others
The second of seven volumes reporting results of a national survey of individualized education programs (IEPs) covers the study's methodology and instrumentation. Introductory sections review the background, objectives, and design related activities of the project. Three aspects of the study are noted: the basic survey (analysis of IEPs for 2,657 public schools); the state/special facility substudy (analysis of IEPs of 550 students in state/special facilities); and the retrospective longitudinal study (analysis of changes in IEPs over a two year period). The next two chapters present information on sampling procedures and a description of study instrumentation, including the following: IEP evaluation checklist, student characteristics questionnaire, school district characteristics questionnaire, and state/special facility characteristics questionnaire. The final two chapters review data collection and data analysis procedures. Sixteen appendixes include sample instrumentation forms and correspondence. (CL)
