A brief, non-technical set of descriptions of products making up the 1971 Pool for Evaluation from which selections were made for focused dissemination is presented. The descriptions cover: (1) what the product is, what it does, who it serves, (2) what the reported findings are regarding effectiveness, benefits, and limitations, (3) what the costs of installation and maintenance are, including teacher preparation and non-dollar "costs," (4) what administrative considerations need to be taken into account in the course of utilization, (5) what dissemination efforts are known to have been undertaken by the developer, or in the planning stage, (6) what obstacles to implementation might be foreseen and what dissemination strategies might be appropriate. The product descriptions are organized into three groupings as follows: (1) nine products recommended for focused dissemination, (2) 11 remaining products among the 20 initially selected for further study, (3) 31 remaining products among the 51 entered into the 1971 product pool. The nine products recommended for focused dissemination are: effective questioning--elementary level, parent/child toy lending library, multi unit elementary school, cooperative urban teacher education, the teaching of science, match box, individualizing instruction in math, reinforced readiness requisites program, and communications skills.
