Approaches to Assessing Bilingual/Bicultural Programs.
Carrillo, Federico Martinez, Ed.
The papers in this monograph reflect different approaches used in the assessment and evaluation of bilingual education programs. Doctors Harry Berendzen and Katherine Bemis provide some practical considerations for implementation of evaluation. They list responsibilities of an evaluator and offer an evaluation management plan which takes into consideration needs assessment, performance objectives, measurement of project impact, material development, staff development, and community involvement. Dr. Michael Massarotti offers a systematic procedure for collecting information based on pre-established objectives and subsequent analysis, reporting, and use of the information for the purpose of making decisions concerning program development. Dr. Charles Leyba provides an overview and design of Title VII program evaluation. He also discusses standardized testing and analysis of scores. Finally, the topics of Dr. Robert Reeback's paper include a critique of Title VII regulations concerning evaluation, some examples of misguided or inadequate evaluation, a review of some persuasive evaluation results, and suggestions for reconstituting evaluation in the context of Title VII and adjusting to it in the meantime.
