Managing a Regional Education Service Agency Evaluation Unit.
Roecks, Alan L.
The Evaluation Office of the Region 20 Education Service Center, which serves 50 school districts in the San Antonio (Texas) area, is delineated in this report. The introduction describes the location, size, and budget of the agency as well as the structure and funding of the evaluation office. The first chapter notes the region's future needs for evaluation of microcomputer software and computer-related educational programs and of the cost effectiveness of other educational program options. Chapter 2 covers Region 20's allocation of resources, which involves using an hourly rate for figuring evaluation support. The evaluation office's interaction with its political environment is treated in chapter 3. The fourth chapter discusses the administrative and program evaluation strategies employed by Region 20 to promote the use of evaluation. The final chapter concerns the evaluation office's personnel requirements at the administrative and support levels and comments that computer literacy is increasingly required of personnel. (PGD)
