A Self-Study Process for Preschool Programs. Interdepartmental Capacity-Building Project.
Warrence, Barbara; Kornegay, Linda
Objectives in five preschool program areas are listed in a format suitable for self-evaluation of program activities. With these resource materials, center staff and involved parents can document and assess their program with regard to (1) the quality of adult attention to children, (2) staff relationships, (3) parent participation, (4) staff training, and (5) allied health and social services. Introductory material outlines an approach to evaluation consisting of three phases. The first phase involves self-evaluation by a center committee, the second involves observation and assessment by an external observer, and the third focuses on follow-up assessment and planning for improvement. As an aid to evaluators, a list is provided of program characteristics indicating that objectives are being met. In addition to listing objectives for program assessment, evaluation forms provide space to record evidence documenting the realization of objectives as well as to indicate comments and recommendations.
