Middle School Evaluation: Format, Case History and Perspective.
McAndrews, J. Briggs
The development and use of a format for the self-evaluation of middle schools by local school districts is presented. Included are topical areas of study and procedures which result in increased staff development, community and school communication, a data base for continuing use by the school district and for comparative and research analysis by other educators. The paper uses a field study approach (participant observer) to analyze the case history of the format's use in a middle school during 1975-76. The case history covers the format development, the self-evaluation, and the final evaluation presentation to the Board of Education. (Author/RC)
