Evaluation of Deaf/Blind Projects in Texas, 1979-80.
The report highlights evaluations from the 1979-80 school year of 18 deaf/blind programs in Texas. Two previous years' findings are noted. Analysis of teacher and administrator questionnaires indicated an increase in the trend toward more uniform structuring of individualized education programs (IEPs). Programs were not as successful as the previous year, however, as indicated by reported goal and objective completions, possibly due to the decrease in the number of objectives below the identified optimum number per goal. The major variables identified as crucial to success were hours of instruction, number of objectives per goal, parental involvement, and years of experience with deaf/blind clients. (Author/CL)
