An Evaluation of a Summer Reading Institute, 1968.
This document describes part of the evaluation of a six-week reading institute for 69 K-3 teachers from the Raymond School, Model School Division (MSD), Washington, D.C. and thereby provides an evaluation model for schools to use in their own inservice training programs. Two evaluation instruments developed by an MSD innovation team in cooperation with Educational Testing Service and one instrument developed by the team alone are appended. However, only one of the instruments--the Reading Institute Survey, which was designed to elicit teachers' opinions about the Institute and their perceptions of what they learned--forms the basis of this report; the results of its administration during the last week of the Institute are presented and assessed in terms of the Institute's accomplishment of 18 objectives--attitudinal, methodological, behavioral, and professional. The Survey measures changes the participant foresees in his own classroom, types of favored reading instruction, and reactions to the sensitivity training and experiences (such as working with children) of the program. Although the data was not collected scientifically, it was felt that the experience of the team (who would be available for curriculum assistance during the coming year) in specifying objectives and the data to be collected and in developing measurement instruments would be useful in later program evaluations.
