Final Report on Program Audit: Evaluation of Curriculum and Staff Development Training for Two Clusters.
Morin (Alfred J.) and Associates, Washington, DC.; District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC.
The report is a third party audit/evaluation of a research and development project to provide curriculum and staff development for the implementation of a high school career development program in two career clusters at the Washington, D.C., Lemuel A. Penn Career Development Center. A project overview is presented; major responsibilities of the evaluation team are outlined; and the findings, conclusions, and recommendations detailed. The late date of contract approval for the evaluation meant that the evaluation team was not involved in the project until it was almost completed, and personal visitation at the staff training workshops was limited. Principal data collection instruments were a participant questionnaire developed from the training objectives, interviews with project staff, and review of all available documents and materials relating to the project and training workshops. Results of the questionnaire survey are detailed in both narrative and tabular form. Based upon analysis of evaluation findings, main conclusions were that the major objectives of the RCA consulting team in workshop training were met, but that the overall program plan and stated objectives were too extensive to be accomplished in the time period allowed. More planning and project development should be implemented. (RG)
