This progress report contains a summary of an evaluation of the Cycle I field trial of the Social Conflict and Negotiative Problem Solving instructional system, which was developed by the Improving Teaching Competencies Program of the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory. The evaluation was done to document the field trial workshop, collect data for reporting development and evaluation progress to the National Institute of Education, and provide information helpful to the developers in strengthening the instructional system. The report contains three sections: (1) the evaluation method which summarizes background information about the test site and participants and outlines the evaluation activities; (2) the evaluation results; and (3) recommendations for development and evaluation. The report states that the field test and evaluation of the workshop were held with educators from four school districts in Orange County.
