Showing Off What We Do and How Well We Do It: Or How the Child Development Center Program at Nine Los Angeles Community Colleges Demonstrates Accountability.
Crummer, Karen; And Others
Based on on-site review team visits conducted during spring 1982, this report evaluates the Educational Campus Child Development Centers (CCDC's) operating at 9 to the 10 campuses in the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD). After introducing the evaluation project and its participants, the report outlines the educational philosophy of the LACCD and the history and philosophy of the CCDC's. Next, the report presents brief descriptions of campus centers. Following an explanation of the organization and terminology of the evaluation report, a chart is presented showing CCDC results by program objectives associated with the following goals: (1) to enhance access to higher education for student-parents; (2) to serve as a field training site for academic departments; (3) to function as an early childhood education program; (4) to maintain an exemplary community college campus-based child development center; (5) to offer a parent involvement program; and (6) to expand and enhance existing child development services. For each objective, the chart indicates person responsible, tasks involved, evaluation method, date of completion, colleges at which the objective was attained, and additional information. The next sections of the report provide evaluations for each of the campus CCDC's. Following an evaluation summary and conclusions, appendices provide a sample of forms and survey instruments used in the project. (AYC)
