Evaluation in the Seventies: What We Have Learned About Program Development and Implementation.
Holley, Freda M.
This paper, generated by the Austin, Texas, Independent School District's Office of Research and Evaluation, offers a set of working hypotheses about what a school district must do in the implementation of programs to improve the cost/effectiveness ratio of educational innovations. The author draws on three years of the Austin school district's experience with evaluating program implementation and on recent literature on program development and evaluation. Her analysis leads her to conclude that school district programs will be improved by setting priorities by which programs are approved or disapproved, encouraging the school district staff to understand how the district functions as an organization and how the program implementation process works, devising realistic program designs, and making maximum use of evaluation information.
