Developing a Standardized Educational Program Audit (SEPA): A Formative Look in 1974.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
This document provides information about the development of a quality control procedure that adds a new capability to program management. The procedure, the Standardized Educational Program Audit (SEPA), is being developed by the Florida Department of Education for use with Elementary Secondary Education Act Title III development projects. This report is intended to acquaint educational managers and technicians with this particular approach to the audit problem, with the procedure that has been produced at this point in its development, with its effectiveness, and with technical problems yet to be overcome. SEPA can help in the early detection of technical problems not only within development projects but also among them. Being able to detect and measure the incidence of problems common among projects will help the department of education increase its responsiveness to the needs of district developers. The use of problem information by projects will increase their effectiveness and efficiency. It is expected that once SEPA is fully developed and tested it will be adaptable for quality control applications in a variety of other program operations. (Author/DN)
