A Feasibility Study to Demonstrate the Usefulness of Formative Evaluation in Improving the Quality of E.S.E.A. Title One Programs. Final Report.
The formative evaluation carried out indicated that helpful information and suggestions can be procured by a process evaluation developed on an on-going basis and that constructive feedback for possible program changes can be initiated almost from the very first day. Attempts to relate summative evaluation results to program patterns proved to be extremely difficult because of the fluctuation of program practices and students to be included. However, on the basis of the experience gained from this study, the authors recommend that formative evaluation should be an integral part of program evaluation. (BW)
