Model A Owner's Manual.
Demaline, Randy; Rader, Don
This manual briefly reviews the major guidelines for a Title I evaluation plan using the norm-referenced evaluation model, Model A-1. Designed to help local school district personnel responsible for Title I evaluation activities, the manual can be used as a quick check of present evaluation activities or as a planning guide for future activities. The manual is divided into three sections. In the first, Title I Model A Testing Plan, a form is provided for recording significant information about a testing plan. In the second section, Title I Evaluation Guidelines, a series of clipped pages with arrows at the edges refer the reader to certain sections of the testing form. The pages provide information about the following guidelines: how using Model A measures the impact of Title I programs, separation of pretest and selection, test forms and levels, testing at empirical norm dates, and measuring sustained effects. Additional information is presented in the third section. This refers to ideas mentioned in the guidelines which provide more information on concepts involved in Title I evaluation. This section includes normal curve equivalents, why selection and pretest should be separate, functional-level testing, why it's important to test at norm dates, and Title I evaluation technical standards.
