1978 State Abstracts with an Analysis across the States: The State Dissemination Grants Program. Building Capacity for Improvement of Educational Practice.
NTS Research Corp., Durham, NC.
This report describes NIE's Dissemination Grants Program, documents dissemination activities in 29 state education agencies as of November 1978, and highlights similarities and differences among states participating in the program. It is primarily descriptive rather than evaluative, and reveals that while each state is committed to building dissemination capacity, variation is evident in the ways in which each state proceeds. Section I describes the program and the NTS Research Corporation Study of it, and notes similarities and differences among participating projects, including tables and narratives which illustrate program components and provide a backdrop for a more detailed examination of individual state activities. Summaries of the distinguishing features of the individual projects comprise Section II, while Section III offers a glossary of abbreviations, acronyms, and terms referenced in the report. Individual project abstracts are given for 28 states and one U.S. territory: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, the Virgin Islands, and Wisconsin.
