Rapid Feedback Evaluation of the Women's Educational Equity Act Program. Final Technical Report.
Campeau, Peggie L.; And Others
As the second phase of a two phase assessment, this report presents the results of a rapid feedback evaluation of the extent to which the Women's Educational Equity Act Program (WEEAP) is making progress toward its objectives. Two different kinds of management-oriented information gathering activities were involved: "evaluability assessment" (Phase I) and "rapid feedback evaluation" (Phase II) to provide immediate information on program performance. The premise for the study was that it was inappropriate and unsound to attempt a formal program evaluation until an evaluability assessment had shown WEEAP was capable of functioning as intended and a rapid feedback evaluation, using readily available information, showed positive results. Chapter I summarizes the Phase I evaluability assessment and discusses the purpose, scope, and general approach of the rapid feedback evaluation. Chapters II through VI present the results of the five separate assessment activities that comprised the rapid feedback evaluation. Chapter VII integrates these findings and recommends action steps that can be taken to improve program management and operation. (Author)
