Information Needs to Support an Evaluation Process for Bureau of Indian Affairs Educational Programs.
Jeffery, James R., Comp.
The purpose of this paper is to provide the Director of the Office of Education Programs with an instrument with which to develop an educational data base for providing information to evaluate the education programs of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). Some specific issues and questions are presented along with background information. BIA educational information needs are identified in the following areas: assessment of needs, establishment of goals and objectives, planning for implementation, operation, evaluation, evaluation recycling, and pupil accounting. The proposed technical approach to the development of an education information program includes the utilization of a financial accounting sub-system and a pupil accounting sub-system. Steps suggested for the implementation of these programs are that (1) recoding for the financial management sub-system should be completed early in Fiscal Year 1973, (2) elements of data should be collected in the fall of 1972 and made a part of the permanent pupil record system shortly thereafter, (3) plans should be developed for collecting pupil enrollment and attendance information, (4) plans should be made to administer an appropriate standardized achievement test to all pupils in attendance at Indian schools, (5) work should be done to develop uniform terminology for pupils and curriculum, and (6) work should be begun on standardized evaluation methods.
