Selecting Evaluation Design: Participant's Handbook. Bilingual Evaluation Technical Assistance, Workshop IIB.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for the Study of Evaluation.
This participant's handbook for a workshop on selecting evaluation designs for bilingual programs presents group activities to facilitate learning about the selection process. The objectives of the workshop are to (1) identify the implied comparisons associated with frequently encountered evaluation questions, (2) select the most appropriate evaluation design for four different evaluation purposes, and (3) design a small evaluation for a simulated bilingual program. Three activities that will help participants achieve these objectives are described. The first activity involves analyzing a design for evaluating students' achievement in English, Swabe, and Ono reading; math; and language skills. The second activity involves deciding on the necessary comparative data and design required for a given evaluation. The third and final activity involves designing an evaluation of either an elementary or junior high school bilingual program. Sample answers are given, and a workshop participant evaluation form is appended. (NCR)
