Snyder, C. W., Jr.
Information on evaluation planning for the Community Junior Secondary School (CJSS) system in Botswana is presented in this monograph. The papers were used within the Ministry of Education's Department of Curriculum Development and Evaluation as part of the Junior Secondary Education Improvement Project (JSEIP). The first two chapters describe the participative and argumentative orientation of the evaluation plans. Chapter 3 outlines the mechanism recommended to conduct the evaluation activities, the Evaluation Task Force, and a general plan to begin the process. The proposed tasks and procedures of the Task Force are specified in the fourth chapter. Chapter 5 presents the plans for the continuation of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) testing. The sixth chapter addresses the plans for formative evaluation of the new materials and their dissemination. The final chapter presents the plans for a National Curriculum Consultative Conference Series to promote further dialogue and exchange between the Ministry of Education and its stakeholders. (LMI)
