The California Evaluation Improvement Program. A Statewide Effort in the Teaching of Evaluation.
Malvetti, Aniello L.; And Others
This document contains five symposium papers on the California Evaluation Improvement Program (EIP). Since 1974, a network of eight regional centers have annually assisted approximately 6,000 educators with educational program evaluation. Established to train middle management personnel to evaluate their own programs, the EIP centers now also evaluate programs, conduct research, perform needs assessments and develop proficiency tests. In "The California Evaluation Improvement Program: The State Perspective," Carolyn M. Fowle provides background on the beginning, development, and success of the EIP. Ronald P. Unruh discusses how Fresno Center meets school district needs in "The Management, Operation, and Staffing of an EIP Center." Using this same title Randall Cognetta describes the San Mateo Center program. In "Responding to Emerging Needs: The Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA)," Jack Thompson outlines the EIP Centers' services to this program. In "Developing Evaluation Teaching Materials," Aniello L. Malvetti summarizes development steps for training materials produced by the California Evaluation Improvement Center. (BS)
