Title IX, Sex-Role Stereotyping, Sex-Fair Guidance, and Third-Party Objective Evaluation and the Role of the Responsible Leader.
Alvir, Howard P.
According to the latest federal guidelines, all projects requesting funding must include the following program features: a systematic plan to eliminate existing sex bias and sex-role stereotyping and to avoid introducing these elements, a third-party objective evaluation of the program's learner benefits, and a strong emphasis on sex-fair guidance, counseling, placement, and followup services. Three articles that can help prepare educational leaders to deal with the federal guidelines include "The Role of the Responsible Leader in Developing Teacher-Prepared Research in Educational Technology,""The Role of the Responsible Leader in Evaluation Based Upon Counting Learner Benefits," and "D.O.E.S.--Decision-Oriented Evaluation Systems." According to these articles, three concerns emerge for responsible leaders: programs should be cost-effective, programs should be modularized, and programs should be transportable. The responsible leader provides input that stresses the values of these three program attributes. A Decision-Oriented Evaluation System (D.O.E.S.) looks at these three criteria as important yardsticks for measuring the success of any program. (Author/JG)
