Evaluating the Elementary School: A Guide for Cooperative Study.
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Atlanta, GA. Commission on Elementary Schools.
This guide is designed to enable a school to evaluate the effectiveness of its programs and to develop plans for improvement. Section I is concerned with evaluation in general, including the reasons for and probable outcomes of the evaluation process. Section II guides the faculty through the self-study by delineating the six major areas for consideration: purposes, programs, personnel, facilities, community school interaction, and coordination. Sixteen selected bibliographies are provided for the major areas considered in this section. Section III, building upon the data gathered under Section II, assists the faculty in summarizing planned school improvement projects and in determining priorities. The appendix contains the official outline to be used in preparing the report of the self-study and a review of the accreditation process. (Author/PR)
