Improvement-Oriented Evaluation: An LEA Example.
Yap, Kim Onn; Enoki, Donald Y.
Evaluation activities conducted by the Hawaii State Department of Education in the Honolulu School District are described. These activities met all the requirements of the Title I Evaluation and Reporting System (TIERS). The Comprehensive Language Improvement Program (CLIP) was implemented to assist disadvantaged children. CLIP had four components (language improvement centers, curriculum, instruction, and parent involvement) which were integrated into a comprehensive program. The improvement-oriented evaluation strategy was outlined and discussed. Key elements in the improvement-oriented evaluation strategy included evaluation focus, formulation of evaluation questions, selection of evaluators, planning and designing the evaluation, and implementation. The CLIP instructional strategies study was designed to promote the use of evaluation information in the district. A quality monitoring process enabled district staff to use evaluation data in working with school level staff to effect positive changes in program implementation. (DWH)
