Program Evaluation: DEC Recommended Practices.
This paper lists practices recommended by the Council for Exceptional Children's Division for Early Childhood concerning program evaluation in early intervention and early childhood special education programs for infants and young children with special needs and their families. An introductory section notes the guiding assumptions upon which the recommended program evaluation practices are based. A framework for the recommended practices is then discussed, categorizing the indicators according to four attributes of a program evaluation: utility, feasibility, propriety, and technical adequacy. Twenty-three recommended practices are then listed, within the categories of utility, feasibility, propriety, and technical adequacy. The recommended practice indicators are not exclusively bound to any particular evaluation model, and are not specific to a single program evaluation decision, evaluation object, or evaluation type.
