Eastside, Westside... An Exercise in Applying Document Analysis Techniques in Educational Evaluation. Research on Evaluation Program Paper and Report Series. No. 78. Interim Draft.
This booklet is about document analysis and its utility as a method in education evaluation, and is intended for evaluators in local school districts, regional education agencies, and state departments of education. Document analysis is described as a technique that relies heavily upon a variety of written materials for data, insights, and judgments about programs or events. Also described are document tracking, verification, and content analysis, the procedures employed in document analysis. A series of exercises based on actual documents related to the closure of several schools in Portland, Oregon, during the 1980-81 school year are provided for practice in these procedures. (LC)
