Teachers as Evaluators Project: A Guide to Evaluation in the Kindergarten or Preschool.
Russell, N.; And Others
This document provides units to assist teachers and parents in evaluating kindergarten and preschool curricula. Preparing an evaluation and planning an evaluation are covered in units I and II. Two other units have been written as resource documents and present data-gathering methods and ways of reporting and using information. The authors stress that the units are not prescriptive and that they reflect only one approach to curriculum evaluation. The aim of unit I is to sharpen awareness of the procedures involved in the evaluation process at the kindergarten level; it is anticipated that a broad overview of evaluation as well as the identification of an issue or area for evaluation will be obtained upon completing the unit. The aim of unit II is to increase understanding of issues and implications when planning an evaluation; it is anticipated that a clear outline of evaluation steps will be achieved upon completing the unit. There is a clear need for a workshop leader, according to the authors, and group work is recommended when large numbers of teachers are involved. The extent of participants' experience will dictate how the material is best presented. (Author/DB)
