Rough Rock School Evaluation, Spring 1974. Research and Evaluation Report Series No. 03.01.
Hopkins, Thomas R.; And Others
Presenting the findings of five different evaluators and/or evaluation teams, this 1974 evaluation of the Navajo Rough Rock Demonstration School is organized as follows: (1) an evaluation of Rough Rock's administration; (2) a followup report re the 1972 Rough Rock Evaluation Report; (3) a list of the curriculum evaluation criteria; (4) an evaluation of the language arts program; (5) an evaluation of out-of-class activities. The section on administration includes 25 criteria with corresponding findings and recommendations. Referring to specific recommendations found in the 1972 evaluation report, the section presenting the follow up report suggests that, in general, the school has become more businesslike and professional, particularly in terms of authority delegation. The section on curriculum evaluative criteria simply presents itemized criteria for language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, health and physical fitness, art, and music. The language arts program evaluation presents an extensive program description, discusses the program's strengths and weaknesses, and presents 10 specific recommendations. The section on student out-of-class activities presents an evaluation correlating student need fulfillment (a la Maslow) with out-of-school activities and student needs with student problems (a chart is presented depicting 20 activities and their numerous components as scored at Rough Rock).
