Evaluation of the Field Test of Project Information Packages: Volume II--Recommendations for Revision.
Horst, Donald P.; And Others
This report, the second of three volumes, presents recommendations for revisions to the USOE Project Information Packages (PIPs). Field tests were made to determine experimentally whether the six prototype PIPs were effective mechanisms for replicating the six exemplary projects and what modifications, if any, they required. The primary focus of this volume is the package per se and, in particular, the revisions in content and format required to maximize the utility of the PIPs within the replication system. Five of the most central themes and their relevance to recommendations for PIP revisions are discussed. These themes are (1) the motivational issues in replicating a compensatory education project developed outside of the replicating district, (2) the impact of federal funds on a replication project, (3) the identification of an appropriate context for replicating a project, (4) the timing and scheduling of the replication effort, and (5) the importance of the project director in the replication mechanism.
