Mathematics: Program Assessment and Improvement Planning Manual.
Whitman, Nancy C.; And Others
This document provides a model for assessing a school's mathematics program and planning for program improvement. A systematic process for instructional improvement focuses upon students' needs and the identification of successful instructional strategies to meet these needs. The improvement plan and the implementation of intervention strategies are based on the analysis of assessment data. The climate, leadership, and collaborative efforts among people involved are considered as crucial factors; also essential is a common body of knowledge, skills, and attitudes from which to approach instruction. The eight major sections of the manual focus on (1) goals and objectives; (2) evaluation; (3) Foundation Program Assessment and Improvement System (FPAIS), the official curriculum management system of the Department of Education; (4) elementary and intermediate schedules; (5) high school schedules; (6) trends and issues in mathematics education; (7) problem solving; and (8) reading in mathematics.
