An Evaluation of the Child-Based Information System.
Carroll, Donald M.; And Others
Five groups were formed to investigate different aspects of the Child-Based Information System (CBIS) developed by the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit of Pennsylvania: (1) a data management group to assess the effectiveness of CBIS as an administrative support system; (2) a systems delivery group to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of the system design; (3) a curriculum/instruction group to evaluate the validity of the curriculum base and the strategy retrieval system; (4) a personnel group to assess the reactions of those persons involved with CBIS on a day-to-day operational level; and (5) a guardianship group to evaluate the impact of CBIS on parent and student attitudes and student performance. The findings and conclusions of the evaluation panels, based upon classroom observations, interviews with such primary and secondary information sources as teachers and administrative staff, and written documentation of the system, are grouped according to their respective topics. A series of recommendations concludes the report and the studies of the individual groups as well as the forms used in the implementation of CBIS are appended. (JD)
