Strategies for Site Evaluation of Gifted Programs.
San Diego City Schools, CA.
The guide is designed to assist administrators and teachers at the school site level in planning and carrying out evaluation of their gifted programs. After an overview, the importance of instructional objectives is discussed, including the components of measurable performance objectives. The selection of educational activities is explored and criteria for assessing the qualitative difference of the activities is outlined. The use of measurement instruments and sources of evaluation data are presented. Various types of tests, such as teacher-made tests, department, school, or district-wide tests, and norm-referenced tests, are defined. Problems and methods of measuring attitudes and self concept are explored. The use of the written plan (the format for stating the objectives, activities, and evaluation of the program) is explained. Appended are a list of sources of information, a partial list of measurable factors available in most school settings, performance objectives for the 1975-6 program, a sample of the written plan, a sample evaluation of the written plan, and sample evaluation instruments.
