Rhode Island State Dept. of Education, Providence. Bureau of Technical Assistance.
This report describes the major accomplishments of the Rhode Island Dissemination Capacity Building Project (DCBP) in improving the dissemination of educational information by means of information collection, linkage, and management services. Five sections comprise: (1) a report of the activities of the Rhode Island DCBP from 1976 to 1981; (2) an analysis of the status of educational information dissemination prior to the project and at its completion; (3) an evaluation of the project's approach to improving educational equity for minorities, women, and the handicapped; (4) a discussion of methods of evaluation employed throughout the project; and (5) a delineation of the attempted institutionalization of DCBP services, i.e., the transfer of funding from federal to other sources. DCBP accomplishments as reported include the development or expansion of files containing educational information, the compilation of resource guides and information products, the design of targeted communications, the coordination of conferences, the provision of training in the effective use of information, and other services to the local education authorities (LEAs) and the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE). Appendices include sample program and evaluation design charts and a detailed examination of the failure of Rhode Island's attempt to institutionalize DCBP services. (ESR)
