A Retrospective Analysis of the Development of Program Criteria.
Singer, Norman M.
The director of a recently completed curriculum development project describes the project's need for product criteria to serve as guidelines for materials development. The background and context for criteria development involved the need to reconceptualize and redesign the contents and methods of career exploration activities envisioned for junior high and middle school students. This retrospective analysis describes (1) the background and context that required extensively revised criteria, (2) the deliberative steps taken by project staff to develop criteria for guiding development of instructional materials, (3) the actual criteria developed as a result, and (4) an interpretive summary and conclusion drawn from the analysis. The paper was presented as part of a symposium exploring the value of retrospective accounts of curriculum deliberation as a source of knowledge about the curriculum development process. (Author/MLF)
