Evaluation of Handicapped Children's Early Education Program (HCEEP). Final Report.
Stock, J. R.; And Others
Described is the evaluation of 32 model projects involving 160 children (birth to 8-years-old) in the federally funded Handicapped Children's Early Education Program (HCEEP). The steps involved in developing six data collection instruments, (including a child-based measure of achievement, four measures of project effectiveness, and an instrument to determine the child's handicapping condition), sampling procedures, and methods of training data collectors are among the aspects of information collection detailed. A section on data treatment covers coding and processing as well as methods for analyzing HCEEP impact on different types of children, parents, and projects. Evaluation results are reported for program impact on child growth (including consideration of age, sex and primary handicap), verification of handicapping condition and service needs assessment, parent survey, cost analysis, followup of graduates, and replication and dissemination strategies. Specifications of a system to continually monitor HCEEP effectiveness are provided in a section comprising nearly one-half of the document. A final chapter summarizes principal results and conclusions. (CL)
