Development of Self-Study Instruments for Use in Accrediting. Final Report.
Scholl, Geraldine T.
To evaluate the Self-Study and Evaluation Guide for Residential Schools as an instrument for self-study which precedes the actual accreditation process, a staff reaction form was utilized in five schools for the blind. The reaction form consisted of information on the individual responding, his reaction to the total Guide, and his reaction to specific sections of the Guide. A total of 275 inquiries (85.4%) were returned with the following results: the Guide was considered deficient as a mechanism for describing programs for the multiply handicapped and for describing the role of houseparents in the school program; certain schools encountered difficulties in adapting the context of the Guide to their individual situation; but overall the Guide was found to be appropriate and useful for describing programs. Appendixes include the forms used, and tables present specific data collected. (Author/JM)
