The Education Division's Joint Dissemination Review Panel: Three Papers. Product 2.
Educational Products Information Exchange Inst., Stony Brook, NY.
This document, which is the second product of an EPIE (Educational Products Information Exchange) project investigating the criteria used to select instructional materials, consists of three papers dealing with the Education Division of the JDRP (Joint Dissemination Review Panel). Paper I presents the purposes, procedures, and criteria established by the JDRP to be used in judging the effectiveness of educational products, materials, practices, and methods developed with funds from either OE (Office of Education) or NIE (National Institute of Education). The JDRP ensures that the two agencies apply the same criteria for judging evidence of effectiveness before federal dissemination. Paper II, by Dr. Lois-ellin Datta, explains the JDRP controversy centering around four issues: (1) criteria used, (2) review of proprietary products, (3) equity of opportunity in providing evidence, and (4) impact of evaluation practice and flow of products to the field. Paper III, by G. Kasten Tallmadge, suggests that JDRP approval not be considered a sufficient condition for federal expenditure for dissemination, but that JDRP approval constitute an approval for further evaluation of the product being considered.
