Evaluative Criteria for the Evaluation of Secondary Schools. Fourth Edition.
American Council on Education, Washington, DC.
Revised every 10 years, this manual includes specific instruments for evaluating schools to appraise their quality and to encourage staffs to seek better materials and procedures. Evaluation is based on the principle that a school should be evaluated in terms of what it is striving to accomplish and according to the extent to which it is meeting the needs of the students enrolled and of the community it serves. Suggestions are given for the appointment and tasks of (1) a steering committee to have responsibility for planning and supervising the entire self-evaluation of the school and (2) a visiting committee to provide a check on the self-evaluation of the staff. Following the evaluation, a series of activities are suggested for stimulating improvements in the services offered by the school. (MF)
