Toward an Evaluation Strategy for FAP-Day Care.
Datta, Lois-ellin, Ed.
This report presents the findings of an invitational conference sponsored by the Office of Child Development to assess the implications of Family Assistance Plan (FAP) day care provisions from the viewpoint of program evaluation. The first section outlines the features of FAP day care, and the second section identifies accountability issues for the four major consumer groups (children, parents, staff and community). The third section presents the strategy for a 5-year evaluation plan, orders the steps to be taken, and assigns cost estimates to these projects. A summary of the basic questions involved in evaluating FAP day care is presented in section four. Three-quarters of the report is made up of appendices which include: (1) basic questions and answers concerning the proposed child care program under the Family Assistance Act (1970); (2) a working paper outlining the research accountabilities in FAP day care; (3) a list of conference participants; (4) notes and proceedings of the conference; and (5) lists of day care projects sponsored by agencies of the state and federal governments.
