Education for the People: Volume III. A Handbook for Determining School Effectiveness.
California State Legislature, Sacramento. Joint Committee on Educational Goals and Evaluation.; California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This handbook explains basic principles and methods of evaluation that can be used in assessing the effectiveness of educational priorities, programs, and personnel. Volumes I and II provided guidelines to assist in the setting of communitywide educational goals; Volume III is intended to help schools and communities carry out educational planning, implementation, and evaluation in order to meet those goals. The handbook is organized into three main sections containing several chapters each. Section A provides a general introduction to evaluation in education; section B examines the evaluation of program effectiveness in educational settings; and section C discusses the evaluation of student programs. More than half of the handbook consists of appendixes A, B, and C, which present examples of evaluation methods and explain important ideas suggested in sections A, B, and C. Each appendix contains resource material related to its corresponding section. The handbook is designed for use in conjunction with a companion booklet, "School=Community Participation in Determining School Effectiveness," which provides a brief overview of educational evaluation and presents basic guidelines for developing a cooperative school-community program of educational evaluation.
