How Can Evaluation of Staff Development Centers be Made Useful to Researchers? Occasional Paper No. 32.
Lezotte, Lawrence W.
Professional development center programs present the opportunity for both practitioners and researchers to gain valuable insights into the teaching profession and the mental lives of teachers. Evaluation of these programs informs educational researchers and is responsive to the needs and expectations of funding agencies. It would be useful to conduct program evaluations in the areas of decision making, program and participant characteristics, and program effectiveness. (Author/CJ)
