Development and Evaluation of Planning Program Implementation: A Process Guide. Far West Series in Instructional Planning.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
Providing a summary record of the development and evaluation of an incomplete product, this status report discusses a training program to aid school staff in producing implementation plans for programs. Consisting of printed materials, guidelines for considering the aspects of program design with implications for program implementation are presented. The planning process, proposed as one of a variety of task approaches, assumes that planning is a group process involving the responsible decision-makers, that staff members have performance capability, and that the chosen program meets a pressing need. The unit is composed of six sessions, of which the first two concentrate on placing implementation in context with overall instructional program planning. Sessions 3, 4, and 5 take up the detailed processes of implementation, and the final session is a review of the planning steps. The product evaluation report suggests that this product is incomplete and needs further development. (Author/DW)
