Assessing the Program Environments of Head Start and Other Pre-School Children: A Survey of Procedures. Addendum to Final Report.
Dopyera, John; Lay, Margaret
The objective of this undertaking has been to identify procedures and perspectives which have potential for assessing program environments of preschool age children, analyze the procedures relative to program components abstracted from known preschool programs, and discuss the results of this analysis in terms of its relevance for future program environment assessment. More specifically, the work described in this report consisted of completing the following tasks: (1) searching and identifying materials, i.e. program documentation procedures, written descriptions of programs, other materials on environments which might be useful; (2) analyzing the procedures for methodological and substantive similarities and differences and developing a perspective on assessment; (3) analyzing programs for their components and the development of a criterion list of program components - as well as elaboration of the concept of program environment; (4) cross-comparison of the procedures with the criterion list for determining the program documentation capacity of existent procedures; (5) examining the results of this work in terms of implications for program assessment and for future development of procedures for program assessment. Many of the rating forms and scales discussed are included in the appendices. (Author/MS)
