Assessment of the Long-Range Impact of the CERLI Training Program (SCE), Specialist in Continuing Education. (Charleston, Illinois, July 1-August 9, 1968).
Cooperative Educational Research Lab., Inc., Northfield, IL.
To determine the long-run impact of the CERLI training program, the trainees' abilities to function as Specialists in Continuing Education (SCE) had to be measured and assessed. This assessment is a followup to "Assessment of the CERLI Training Program Specialist in Continuing Education" (EA 002 706). The document reports on attempts to measure, collect, and analyze data reflecting (1) the SCEs' impact on others' attitudes and communications, and (2) the SCEs' activities and evaluations of the long-range impact of their training. The report summarizes instances, activities, and methods that were intended to systematically gather information to aid in the evaluation of the long-range impact of the Charleston Training Program. Although successful data collection activities are occasionally reported, the followup evaluation phase was generally characterized as an unsuccessful endeavor. The failure to produce sufficient and valid data is attributed to "many complex and interacting variables," which are not speculated about in the document. (DE)
