The Joint Dissemination Review Panel IDEABOOK.
Tallmadge, G. Kasten
The Joint Dissemination Review Panel (JDRP) is a joint USOE-NIE panel which reviews the evidence of effectiveness submitted for a variety of educational products and practices developed through federally supported programs. Studies show that school superintendents and other adopters prefer to initiate changes where there is assurance that benefits are reliable, valid, and substantial. JDRP provides this assurance. This Ideabook, prepared at the request of practitioners, has two purposes. The first is to illustrate the ways to gather convincing evidence of the effectiveness of educational innovations. It is, thus, a guide for planning evaluations in anticipation of future submission to the JDRP. The second purpose is to suggest how to bring current evidence of effectiveness together in a succinct and forceful manner. Such presentations enhance the chances for JDRP approval and enable potential adopters to compare products and their associated claims. (Author/DAG)
