Formative and Summative Assessment of a Reform Project: Models of Change. A Glimpse at the Texas Scope, Sequence and Coordination Project (SS&C).
Crow, Linda W.; Bonnstetter, Ronald J.
The purpose of this paper from a symposium is to promote a discussion of implementation models by examining a current study assessment package for a national reform effort. The evaluation of Scope, Sequence, and Coordination (SS&C) implementation in Houston consisted of a formative and summative assessment. The formative assessment consisted of data from parents, administrators, and teachers. The summative data consisted of student attitude data; a longitudinal student data file with information on course choices, achievement, attendance, and graduation rate; student achievement test scores; and concept analysis. The results of a parent survey (n=232) on SS&C are presented. About one-third of the parents thought their children liked science must better this year compared to last. (PR)
