Improving Educational Quality through Comprehensive Achievement Monitoring: A Proposal for a State-Wide Demonstration.
Gorth, William P.; and Others
The adaptation is proposed of an evaluation technique to the needs of the State Department of Education of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts by demonstration in a selected group of schools. Improving educational quality through Comprehensive Achievement Monitoring (CAM) is accomplished by providing students and educators with longitudinal and comprehensive information which will permit systematic and effective adaptations of instructional treatments to changing demands. The proposal begins with a statement of the rationale of CAM, a comparison of three evaluation models, and a discussion of evaluation issues. Seven major components of a two-stage plan for implementation of the CAM technique in selected school districts in the 1970-71 school year are outlined. The proposal concludes with a budget for the planning and demonstration stages. (Author/TA)
