Evaluation Planning of Post-Literacy Programs.
Bhola, H. S.
A model for evaluation planning of post-literacy programs involves listing possible evaluation needs, administration of evaluation, and dissemination of evaluation results for utilization by all potential users. Questions that should be pursued in evaluating post-literacy can be divided into these categories: (1) questions at the interface regarding literacy programs, literates, and aspirations of illiterate and new literate; (2) questions on literacy retention; (3) questions on second chance education programs; (4) questions on the systemic integration theme (social integration of new literates); and (5) questions on the socialization of individuals by post-literacy programs. Those working with post-literacy programs should choose questions from these lists to meet their priority needs. The tasks in the administration of evaluation include the development of an evaluation system; linkage of this system with the program system as well as with outside support institutions; recruitment and training of evaluators; resource generation and allocation; and provision of logistical support, quality control, and time budgeting of the enterprise. The information collected must then be synthesized. From the syntheses of the evaluative information can be drawn practical operational conclusions that should be disseminated throughout the system among evaluators and program specialists. (YLB)
