Special Education. Program Quality Evaluation (PQE).
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. for Exceptional Children.
The manual, intended for local education agency administrators, outlines Program Quality Evaluation (PQE), North Carolina's approach to measuring special education programs. Chapter 2 establishes the rationale of evaluation and advocates the goal-based approach. Chapter 3 lists three program goal areas (determining learner gains/outcomes, locating and evaluating learners, and placing learners appropriately) with separate program objectives under each. Evaluation questions and criteria are then proposed for each goal area and objective in chapter 4. Chapters 5 through 9 detail procedures in collecting data, selecting the sample, using the instrumentation (including record review and parent, staff and student surveys--samples of which are appended), analyzing the data and reporting results, and developing a management plan to implement program improvement activities.
