A Large County-Wide School System Point of View on Evaluation.
Tisdel, Linwood E.
A major consideration in the dissemination of any evaluation reports should be the uses of the target populations who will receive them. In the development of evaluation in and for the Piedmont Schools Project, the following uses have been found critical: formative evaluation on a continuing planned basis and on request from program and instructional people, the accumulation of base-line data in several areas for use in determining change as the Project develops for Project and School District decision-makers, and the accumulation and processing of the data in such a form as to make it directly usable in the refunding request. The initial efforts of the evaluation team have been directed toward assisting the instructional and management people in the attaching of behavioral meanings to the goals and objectives of the Project. Doing so facilitated the formulation of a productive evaluation plan in the form of an organizational chart which is included in the document. The chart illustrates seven main blocks giving the major evaluation thrusts, with varying numbers of smaller boxes explicating in some detail the implementation of these thrusts. (RC)
