Texas State Survey of Hearing Impaired Children and Youth: A New Approach to Statewide Planning, Monitoring, and Evaluation of Special Education Programming. Special Report, Series C, No. 2.
Trybus, Raymond J.; And Others
The report describes the establishment of the Texas State Survey of Hearing Impaired Children and Youth as a pupil data management information system for monitoring and evaluation of special education services for hearing impaired children in Texas. The findings of the 1976-77 survey, encompassing 4,384 hearing impaired children receiving publicly funded special education services in the state, provide statewide figures and region-by-region comparisons on a wide variety of educationally salient pupil and program characteristics. The implications of the data for program improvement throughout the state are presented, along with descriptions of administrative actions planned for 1977-78 as a result of survey findings and recommendations for the future of the data system. Copies of the data collection forms for the l976-77 and the l977-78 surveys are included in the appendixes, as are sample copies of the "Quality of Data Reports," the "Individual Student Reports," and the "Reporting Source Summary Reports," which were provided to all school programs involved in the survey. A final appendix provides the text of the contract between the Texas Education Agency and the Office of Demographic Studies of Gallaudet College providing for the use of funds from P.L. 89-313, Title I, for the establishment and operation of this state data system.
