Sharing Educational Success. A Handbook for the Validation of Educational Practices.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This handbook addresses itself to the identification and validation of successful programs and practices that may facilitate constructive educational change in the nation's schools. The effort focuses on projects funded by Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which operates under a legislative mandate to fund exemplary practices as demonstration sites for educational innovation. Exemplary projects are nominated for validation by their respective states according to three criteria: a) effectiveness/success, b) cost information, and c) exportability. The handbook includes a description of the validation procedures and the necessary application and review forms. The application for validation consists of five parts: a) information and project description, b) evidence of effectiveness/success, c) cost information, d) evidence of exportability, and e) certifications and supporting documents. The application is reviewed and rated before an on-site validation team is commissioned. The team is responsible for the validation of evidence submitted by the applicant with regard to a) project description, b) effectiveness/success, c) cost, and d) exportability. (Author)
