The Development of Project Information Packages for Effective Approaches in Compensatory Education. Final Report. Report No. UR-254.
Tallmadge, G. Kasten
The project described herein represents an attempt by the U. S. Office of Education to take a more active role in the national dissemination and replication of those programs which have achieved the greatest success in producing reliably measured achievement benefits in reading and mathematical skills. With this general objective in mind, the U. S. Office of Education's Office of Planning, Budgeting, and Evaluation initiated a multiyear investigation of the feasibility of packaging exemplary projects in sufficient depth and detail so that the packages themselves would constitute a viable means of replicating successful practices. The first year of the total investigation was concerned with the development of packaging concepts, and the subsequent selection and packaging of six projects for field tryout purposes. This work has been accomplished and is the subject of the present report. Four major tasks were involved in the development of Project Information Packages. They were: (1) to develop criteria for choosing operational approaches to compensatory education worthy of more widespread use and amenable to installation in other schools; (2) to design a project model and to decide, in general, what kinds of information a package should contain and what the media should be; (3) to choose up to eight compensatory education projects for packaging and develop project models for them; and (4) to prepare packages for the selected projects.
