Program Planning and Evaluation. First Chance for Children, Vol. 2.
Gallagher, James J.; And Others
Presented by the Technical Assistance Development System are a planning model for the specification of problems and an evaluation strategy for information collection to implement decision making in the First Chance network of programs for preschool handicapped children. The first chapter offers a planning model in terms of measurable goals, administrative objectives, and outcome objectives for the target populations of children, parents, and decision makers. The second chapter considers evaluation to consist of daily process evaluation and longer term product evaluation based on standardized and nonstandardized measures of administrative and outcome objectives. Major types of data requests by the Bureau of Education for the Handicapped are briefly considered in the third chapter. The final chapter on educational trends suggests that the emphasis on planning and evaluation has arisen out of research such as the J.S. Coleman Report as well as community doubts about the educational non-system's ability to improve. Planning problems such as funding patterns are noted. Also given are a glossary of planning terms and examples of goals and objectives. See EC 050 080 for volume one. (DB)
