Massachusetts Dissemination Project. Final Report.
DiBella, Cecilia M.
This report outlines the activities and impact of the Massachusetts Dissemination Project, a capacity-building program funded from 1976 to 1982 to further the dissemination of information on educational resources in Massachusetts. Major project outcomes are listed, including the production of two serials entitled Resources for Schools (26 issues) and a Focus On: (over 5,000 booklets), and the provision of conference presentations, displays, training, workshops, and resource exchanges. Six sections provide (1) a summary of major project components and activities; (2) a comparison of dissemination services in the Massachusetts Department of Education before and after the project; (3) a discussion of the formation of the Bureau of Educational Research which will continue work begun by the project; (4) an examination of the project's involvement in promoting equity in areas of race, sex, ethnic origin, and special education; (5) a delineation of the project's successful impact on educational decision-making; and (6) a fifth-year impact report presenting data on project services. Appendices comprise a Massachusetts Dissemination Project brochure, a needs assessment survey form, results of the needs assessment survey, a sample reader response card distributed with publications, abstracts submitted with project proposals, approved workplans, project budget data, an annotated bibliography of project publications, and a description of the Bureau of Educational Resources.
