The School Without Walls. Final Evaluation Report.
Service Corp. of America, Baltimore, MD.
The School Without Walls Program represents an attempt by school officials and community participants to expand the richness of the high school learning environment by utilizing the many educational resources in Washington, D.C. found outside the formal classroom setting. It represents an attempt to increase the challenge and interest level of students in the educational process by creating a more realistic educational environment. It was designed to facilitate the educational process by making learning more concrete, increasing the positive attitudes which are highly correlated with learning, and providing more emphasis on individualized educational diagnosis and prescription in the learning process. The evaluation, which brings together under one cover all aspects of the School Without Walls, is based primarily on the stated objectives of the Program and attempts to determine the extent to which the objectives of the Program have been reached. This aim refers to both processes (things done to implement and operate the program) and product objectives (actual behavioral outcomes of students, teachers, etc.). The report describes the objectives of the Program and the Program contents designed to reach these objectives, and presents and discusses data needed to assess each objective. Recommendations based on the data used in this report are presented as part of the evaluation. (Author/EA)
