Harootunian, Berj; And Others
The program is a generalized model which provides a blueprint for the development and implementation of a training program for evaluators and researchers in all aspects of education. As the program develops, it will be expanded to include personnel in educational development and diffusion. Noteworthy features include 1) a focus on effecting change in education, 2) self-renewal and self-correction, 3) a multi-agency client-centered training effort, 4) a multi-disciplinary base, 5) the training of personnel at three distinct competency levels, 6) internship and on-the-job experiences, 7) a modularized curriculum, 8) transportability of the program, 9) training for cooperation and interdependence, and 10) an economically feasible career ladder for educational personnel. The consortium constituents include institutions of higher education, public schools, the educational industry, and governmental agencies. The report contains details of the program specifications, including module objectives, an example of the SCERT element and of a detailed module, the support systems, measurement and evaluation procedures, and the computerized monitor-evaluation support system (MESS). The budget is set out in detail and an appendix includes a description of the evaluation and research training capability of SCERT, a list of participants, and information on key personnel. (MBM)
