Administrators' Conference on Secondary Social Science. Follow-Up Evaluation Report.
Herlihy, John G.; Inkpen, Thomas
As part of an administrators' workshop, participants responded to a questionnaire dealing with knowledge and awareness of the new social studies. One year later a followup questionnaire assessed recent activities toward knowledge, awareness, and implementation. A comparison of results on the questionnaires for the extent of use of five national curriculum projects showed a marked increase in usage. Followup assessments also showed an increased familiarity with the Social Science Education Consortium's Curriculum Materials Analysis System (CMAS), The Educational Resources Information Center Clearinghouse for Social Studies (ERIC/ChESS), and the Social Studies Curriculum Guidelines developed by the National Council for the Social Studies. When asked about general attitudes toward the workshop, new information gained, and impressions of workshop activities, the participants were equally positive in the posttest and followup. When queried about dissemination activities and implementation of new curriculum, 14 out of 18 of the administrators indicated positive activities in the followup questionnaire. The results indicated that the workshop had a positive and lasting impact on administrators' knowledge of and attitudes toward the new social studies. (Author/DE)
