External Evaluation of Project ACT.
Kreitlow, Burton W.; Kreitlow, Doris J.
Third party evaluation of Project ACT (Adult Competency Training), a United States Office of Education staff development project in Region 8, has examined the achievement of the project's goal of developing a self-generating and self-supporting adult staff development system, thus helping adult educators to become better prepared to serve their clients. The evaluation design includes an examination of internal documents and individual interviews with policy board members, administrators, supervisors, and participants. Findings are arranged under four headings, discussing: (1) documents, examining all project documents from 1973-75 in terms of objectives, structure, and achievements; (2) policy board, examining perceptions of role, outcomes, judgments, objectives, evidence, and decision making; (3) administrators and supervisors, listing interview questions and responses; and (4) other findings, including data on advisory boards, questionnaires, staff perceptions, and follow-up on previous recommendations. A numerated summary of findings includes the following statements: the purpose and objectives of the project have remained constant; very little change has occurred in Board member perceptions; administrators and supervisors consistently rate the project highly; and there is no consistency in advisory board organization throughout Region 8. Eleven tables supplement the discussion. (LH)
