Program Assessment Guide for Public School Special Education Services to Visually Handicapped Students.
Stager, John D.
The guide is intended to help Massachusetts school districts evaluate local educational programs serving visually handicapped students. The document is composed of two self study questionnaires: one to be completed by the teacher of visually handicapped students and one to be completed by administrators or supervisors in charge of the program. The assessment is explained to be useful either for internal assessment of the program involving only the teacher and supervisor or as internal assessment with the results being validated by the State Division of Special Education. The self study questionnaire intended for teachers addresses such program aspects as background information, teacher's caseload, teacher's activity schedule and time spent after normal school hours, and acquisition of skills in a variety of areas, including developmental patterns in visually handicapped learners; selection, design, and/or modification of specialized criteria; instructional strategies; and utilization of resources. The administrator's questionnaire focuses on such aspects as roles and responsibilities and budgetary provisions. (CL)
