An Evaluation Design for the Mercer County Early Childhood Education Program.
Riggs, Donald E.
This paper proposes an evaluation design for Mercer County, West Virginia's state funded early childhood education program, which was initiated to replace independent kindergarten programs. An introductory discussion lists the broad goals of the program, three data collection time schedules, program variables that define the model of the program, and instruments available for measuring these defining variables to determine the exactness of fit of the program to its model. The evaluation design is described in terms of (1) program goals and objectives involving the students, faculty, learning materials, and parental involvement; (2) data collection methods; (3) criteria for judging the program; and (4) decisions to be reached as a result of the evaluation. A conclusion lists the goals of the evaluation program. (SB)
