The Follow-Up Study: An Evaluation System for Improvement of Educational Programs and Services in American Schools Overseas.
Costar, James W.; And Others
This monograph describes, step-by-step, a coordinated system for involving former high school students, graduates, and transfer students in the evaluation of educational programs and services in American schools overseas. Although the system has been field-tested in an overseas setting, its use by schools within the United States requires only a few minor modifications. The book contains a general discussion of problems and procedures related to the evaluation of educational programs, a flow chart indicating the sequence for each stage in conducting a followup study, specific techniques for involving both students and staff, suggestions for developing and mailing the questionnaire along with recommendations on how to use and report the results. Questionnaires and related materials used in other high school followup studies are also included. (Author/PC)
