Developmental Education: A Primer for Program Development and Evaluation.
Roueche, John E.; Roueche, Suanne D.
Addressed in this book is the problem encountered by institutions as more students have entered colleges without adequate preparation in the basic subject areas--communications, mathematics, and science. To accommodate the diversity in the new student populations, varying instructional methods are required. Developmental education programs need therefore to be measured for quality and effectiveness. Aspects of program development to be considered are: an overview of developmental studies programs; institutional commitment; program design components; staffing; and consolidating all the elements. Program evaluation takes into consideration the essential data and personnel, and the development of an evaluation design for developmental education. A survey instrument for program evaluation is included, along with a four-page bibliography. (LBH)
