The Application of an Evaluation Model to a Preschool Intervention Program.
Hines, Brainard W.
The evaluation of AEL's Home Oriented Preschool Education (HOPE) Program spanned a year of design and engineering and three years of field testing and program development. During this time, both formative and summative evaluation activities took place. These evaluation events took place prior to the present model's construction, and contributed to the evaluation plan. Formative evaluation, intended primarily for the program development staff, was conducted by personnel within the program, and consisted mainly of continuously gathered data on student interest and the effectiveness of specific techniques. Summative evaluation, intended for use by indivisuals in management, was conducted by a separate evaluation team over three one-year intervals and covered program effectiveness measures as well as attitude surveys and cost analysis surveys.
