The Design, Evaluation, and Educational Program Audit of a District-Wide K-12 Mentally Gifted Minor Program.
Wertz, Robert D.; Kester, Donald L.
Presented is a paper, delivered at the 1975 Annual International Convention of the Council for Exceptional Children, on planning and implementing an educational program audit for gifted students (K-12) of the Rowland Unified School District in California. Briefly explained in the introduction are the roles of the district evaluator and the county program auditor. A question and answer format is utilized in Section II to provide an overview of the audit process (including purpose and definition of the audit, professional role of the auditor, and stages such as developing performance objectives and designing an effective evaluation system). Sections III, IV, and V deal with steps in implementing one program audit plan; recommendations for improving future evaluation and program audit procedures (such as better coordination and timing of on-site visits); and program audit advantages (such as no-cost program evaluation by an external expert and identification of needed program improvements). Provided is a bibliography of approximately 40 references on educational program evaluation and audit. (LH)
