Are We Helping Our Educationally Handicapped Students?
Kester, Donald L.; Lotz, Patricia
Presented are procedures and selected results from an evaluation and audit of the Special Day Program for elementary level educationally handicapped students in a California school district. It is explained that the purpose of the three special day classes was to provide an intensive remedial program for students with severe learning disabilities. Described are three alternative program evaluation services, the reasons for selection of an educational program audit approach, and the seven stages in the audit process. Provided for selected program objectives are examples of interim and final evaluation and audit report statements. Among findings reported are that individual instructional activities were prescribed for each student in the program and that objectives were met regarding student gains on the Metropolitan Achievement Test and the Gilmore-Oral Reading Test. Suggested references for an educational program evaluation and audit are listed. Appendixes include a social adequacy scale and examples of objectives from the audit plan. (LS)
