The World Is Your Museum. Final Evaluation Report.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.; Service Corp. of America, Baltimore, MD.
This report describes and evaluates The World Is Your Museum Program -- its objectives and information from an Interim Evaluation Report -- and provides other evaluative information from teachers, students, and the project director. The program involved 300 students from eight public and two non-public elementary (K-5) art classes in Washington, D. C. The classes participated in a series of 15 interrelated community resource visits with museums and used audiovisual materials. An overview describes program activities in which emphasis was on expanding student perception and establishing cognitive and visual relationships between encountered concepts and objects. The major focus of the evaluation is twofold: (1) Process Evaluation and (2) Product Evaluation. The Process evaluation examines program implementation and operation according to plans, while the product evaluation investigates the effect of the project on children, teachers, and parents, with special emphasis on attitudinal gains. Evaluation statistics of implementation, operation, and attitudinal outcomes are included in this report. The data show that the program was well administered, teachers were successful in getting students involved in the program, and most students became more independent in their artistic expression.
