Survey of Needs for Bilingual Evaluation Technical Assistance.
This report describes a needs survey administered at the first National Bilingual Education Management Institute. The purpose of the survey was to discover the major needs for evaluation training in bilingual programs. The survey dealt with the following areas of concern: identification of evaluation topics that would be useful and of interest to workshops; and the manner in which project evaluations are carried out and how the results are used. Some of the most frequently mentioned topics in the first part of the survey were program planning and development of an evaluation design, utilization of evaluation results, and evaluation of project management. In the second part of the survey the following topics were considered: (1) evaluation features that were required under the terms of project contracts and how effectively the projects had satisified each requirement; (2) evaluation tasks that caused difficulties for projects and the reasons for the difficulties; (3) the usefulness of the most recent project evaluation for making changes in the project; (4) recommendations for improving the evaluation of bilingual projects; and (5) evaluation topics where there is a need for technical assistance or training.
