How Much Time Is Required for Using Evaluation Results?
Flores, Rebecca; Roecks, Alan
The activities and procedures for Education Service Center, Region 20, Evaluation Services' time accounting system are described. Each individual in the evaluation component at the end of the working day records his or her time spent on an activity. This is done through the use of the time accounting form which is completed and turned in weekly to the person responsible for maintaining the records. Activities are recorded in reference to the appropriate program, whether chargeable or non-chargeable, as well as the task area that effort supports. Printouts by task, project hours, and employee and project numbers are obtained monthly. These printouts, shown in appendix B, are basically a management tool for control of the total evaluation effort on the project. Totals are maintained and recorded monthly, so that the data on the hourly effort remaining in each grant of the program are readily available. The system can be replicated by any school district that uses multiple funding sources in supporting personnel. Such time and effort record keeping systems are now required when a person is funded from several federal or state funding sources. (Author/PN)
