Mathematics Program Assessment and Planning Handbook.
Helgeson, Jerry; And Others
This document is designed to help individual schools: 1) examine the current mathematics program; 2) select and rank program priorities; 3) compare the current program with the "Guidelines for Programs of Excellence in the Basic Skills" and with successful mathematics programs and practices; 4) state goals and objectives which apply to the individual school; 5) plan appropriate steps to implement a more effective program; 6) formulate plans for Elementary Approval, after mathematics has been identified as a need in a Needs Assessment of Certification Process, or on an Idaho Proficiency Test; and to help districts wishing to improve student performance on the Idaho Proficiency Test by clarifying areas of need in the developmental and remedial mathematics program. This handbook is designed as a self-study unit, programed so that a program task force can follow a step-by-step procedure of collecting data and making decisions. The bulk of the material is designed around ten charts, which are to be used to summarize task force conclusions, share findings, report recommendations, and clarify the planning process. A series of appendices are provided, and are intended to be used as an integral part of the work of the task force. (MP)
