Guide to Social Studies Program Evaluation. Grade 7-8.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This document was designed to provide school administrators and professional staff of New York State with a model for evaluating the grade 7-8 social studies program. The program evaluation model outlines a step-by-step procedure for identifying questions for study, gathering and analyzing data, and developing a plan for program improvement. An eight-step procedure for conducting a social studies program evaluation is outlined and discussed: (1) identify a program evaluation coordinator; (2) form a social studies program evaluation committee; (3) convene the building committee; (4) establish a timeline for program evaluation; (5) collect and analyze data; (6) use data and identify social studies program strengths; (7) employ data and identify social studies program needs; and (8) develop a building plan for addressing social studies program needs. Schools are encouraged to conduct a program evaluation on a regular basis, perhaps every three to five years. (DB)
