Applying Evaluation Standards to Prove Effectiveness of Major Training Program Revisions.
Kennedy, Patricia H.
The Standards for Evaluations of Educational Programs, Projects, and Materials for developing an evaluation design were applied to Preservice Innovations in Mainstream Education (PRIME). PRIME, a Dean's Grant Project, is a 3-year federal and state program to modify preservice teacher preparation programs to enable regular education graduates to teach mainstreamed handicapped and nonhandicapped pupils together. The Dean's Grant Project development, its objectives, and budget are described and the project role of a university's Department of Special Education is discussed. The application of standards of utility, feasibility, propriety and accuracy in evaluating the Dean's Grant Project are discussed and found to be particularly useful in evaluation design, data collection, and reporting the information.
