A Demonstration of Causal Modeling in the Utilization of Program Implementation Measures.
Conrad, Kendon J.
This study evaluated the implementation of and the outcomes from a local child parent center compensatory education program. It intended to contribute to a better understanding of one phase of compensatory education; and, in the process, it proposed to develop a relatively simple and practical evaluation strategy which would verify the implementation of a program and relate the implementation measures to the outcome measures. The evaluation strategy included practical methods for modeling the program, gathering data, and analyzing data. Causal modeling techniques were used to relate implementation measures to outcome measures. The strategy was than analyzed regarding its usefulness as an evaluation design which would measure program implementation and provide explanatory power. (Author/PN)
