Post-Occupancy Evaluation of the Danville Community High School.
Clinkenbeard, Gary; And Others
The primary purpose of this study was to develop a model for post-occupancy evaluation of a new school building and to field-test that model on a high school occupied two years before the evaluation. The evaluation model proposed to identify the general objectives of a school building project by means of a review of the educational specifications, to verify the validity of these objectives, and to identify and develop means to evaluate the attainment of these objectives. The objectives evaluated were (1) provide core spaces for 900 pupils and general instruction areas for 700 to 800 pupils, (2) allow for improved educational opportunities for pupils, (3) provide for flexible spaces, (4) utilize modern principles of design and provide a variety of sizes of instruction spaces, and (5) provide spaces that facilitate an innovative curriculum. The instruments selected to aid in the appraisal of each stated objective are described, and the findings summarized in the body of the text. Tables and other data are contained in the appendixes.
