Coppedge, Floyd L.; Smith, Gerald R.
This study presents information regarding evaluation practices and preferences in alternative schools. Data were collected from 118 participants attending a series of institutes dealing with alternative schools. The 8-item questionnaire includes the following topics: (a) affiliation with alternative schools or programs, (b) procedures for conducting evaluation, (c) purposes of evaluation, (d) factors preventing improved evaluation programs, (e) services needed in the area of evaluation, (f) receptivity to the idea of a center to provide needed services, (g) needed research, and (h) additional comments. This study supports the conclusion that alternative school personnel are receptive to evaluation especially when the information gained is used for program development. Lack of time, money, and personnel constitute major deterrents to improvement. (Author)
