Annual Gifted Program: Evaluation Report 1972-1973.
Illinois State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Springfield.
The 1972-73 report provides evaluative perspectives on a variety of aspects of the Illinois public school program for gifted children. Sections provide an overview of the development of the Illinois programs; a review of independent evaluations of Gifted Area Service Centers; a summary of the first statewide survey of Area Service Center clientele; a sketch of the reimbursement component of the Illinois program; a synopsis of findings of the monitoring of 15 experimental projects funded by the Illinois program; judgmental portrayals of university-based training projects for educators of the gifted; five sketches representing the various facets of Illinois program activities; and a set of conclusions presented as an ecology of vital interrelationships of the Illinois Gifted Program. Findings related to the Area Service Centers of the Illinois Gifted Program indicate that these institutions are an effective inservice agent in Illinois education. Findings in regard to the administration of state-funded experimental projects are seen to indicate that the quality of research activity conducted in school districts varies in the amount of time project directors allocate to the project. Findings related to the training projects supported by funds of the Illinois Gifted Program, are reported to indicate that training which incorporates direct contact with gifted children is desirable.
