Collection, Evaluation, Dissemination System (CEDS). An Index of 309/310 Adult Basic Education Projects, Indiana 1976-1981. Final Report.
Newman, Anabel; Huffman, Ruth E.
The purpose of the CEDS project was to assist funded resource centers in the collection and review of completed adult basic education special projects in Indiana. Successful special projects for 1976-81 that resulted in publication of products were identified by applying criteria presented in three instruments. Product reports were then obtained and judged as to suitability for dissemination by electronic means, hands-on experience, workshops, or other dissemination media. An index of special projects was printed and disseminated. Each of the 24 projects was analyzed, and appropriate marketing strategies were recommended. A needs-analysis questionnaire was also administered to approximately 100 adult basic education personnel to identify the appropriate audience for the special projects. The Indiana University SUVON line and microcomputers located throughout Indiana were identified as suitable for use in a statewide communication network. It was concluded that efforts to disseminate products and to diffuse innovations should be intensified, specifications for final products should be formulated, copies of 310 products should be readily available, project evaluations should be more informative, and project publications should be disseminated. Appendixes include the instruments, questionnaires and list of the special projects. (YLB)
