Computer Applications Planning: Program Assessment Profile. A Tool for Analyzing School and District Programs and Activities.
Merrimack Education Center, Chelmsford, MA.
Designed to rate the degree of implementation and quality of all the major components of a computer applications program, this checklist may be used by school district staff to support a self-assessment process, or by an external consultant, to identify elements of the program that need improvement or further development. The following components are included: (1) curriculum, i.e., the existence of a written curriculum for teaching computer literacy and definitions of the elements of the computer curriculum; (2) staff development, job training and computer training; (3) hardware/software and related instructional materials; (4) staffing and organization, scheduling computer assisted instruction, and other educational planning issues; (5) implementation of the program; and (6) program planning and budgeting. It is noted that a mean score for each component on both the implementation and quality scales should be computed. (DB)
