Manual for the Evaluation of Instructional Materials and Curriculum Guides for Bilingual Education Programs. Facilitator's Edition.
Puerto Rican Congress of New Jersey, Trenton.
This manual is concerned with how to facilitate the evaluation of instructional materials through the effective use of physical and human resources. It is intended to be used as a guide, as a model, and as a reference source. As a guide, it offers a broad range of activities, definitions, and illustrations which facilitate the use of the evaluation matrices included. Facilitators who prefer to use the manual as a training model will find it sufficiently flexible to adapt to particular needs. The manual can also be used as a reference source to locate definitions of the items contained in the matrices. This manual deals with three major areas: 1) recruitment of evaluators, 2) training of evaluators, and 3) the evaluation of the training sessions. The section on recruiting evaluators offers guidelines to facilitate decisions leading to the implementation of the program. The questions contained are not exhaustive but they address major concerns in decision making. The section on training evaluation responds to the need of acquiring feedback from participants in the training to secure revisions which will reflect not only the facilitator's ability to improve professionally but also to provide for the needs of those who make the materials evaluation possible.
