Evaluating an Alternative High School Program: A Beginning.
Hoyle, John R.
The methodological difficulty of evaluating alternative programs in specific, measurable terms is described. Based on an alternative program at Talawanda High School in Oxford, Ohio, the writer attempted to develop a model for evaluating an alternative program. The following evaluation procedures were selected: (1) attendance and grades prior to and during the two semesters of the project year; (2) two sets of pretest and posttest questionnaires administered to 25 students in the primary population and parents; (3) four sets of open-ended questionnaires filled out by students, parents, community agencies, and teacher advisors at the end of the project year; (4) nine-week anecdotal reports by the students; and (5) spot-check interviews with students, parents, community agencies, and teacher advisors throughout the project.
