National Evaluation of the PUSH for Excellence Project: Phase 1. Evaluation Design.
Murray, Saundra R.; Murray, Charles A.
Unlike classical experimental evaluation techniques, this evaluation design is intended to accommodate maximum flexibility and a dual purpose: to learn from the program under scrutiny and to help the program in its efforts. The program being evaluated here is the PUSH for Excellence (PUSH-EXCEL) Program whose activities focus on promoting an environment within which better education can take place. Section 1 of the document describes the logic that links PUSH-EXCEL's activities with its goals. This logic is used as a basis for the evaluation design. Section 2 provides an overview of the approach to the evaluation. Section 3 discusses the choice of measurement techniques, and section 4 outlines the segments of the evaluation to be undertaken in 1979-1980. (Author/JM)
