An Evaluation of Project Information Packages (PIPs) as Used for the Diffusion of Bilingual Projects. Volume III: A Prototype Guide to Measuring Achievement Level and Program Impact on Achievement in Bilingual Projects.
Horst, D. P.; And Others
This report describes an evaluation of Project Information Packages (PIPs), sets of manuals and other materials intended to help a school district adopt and implement an exemplary education project. Four PIPs were evaluated in a field test, each PIP describing a different bilingual project. It was concluded that the awareness materials produced few application for PIPs. Field-test sites that received PIPs tended not to follow PIP guidelines closely, but to adapt them extensively, often with good justification. The bilingual programs at the sites were collectively successful, but the dissemination effort could not be judged a success. The present volume is a collection of specific evaluation guidelines and job aides that were developed for the use of the field-test sites and that have been organized in the format of a Prototype Evaluation Manual. This volume should be viewed as a preliminary draft. It deals in detail only with the evaluation of student achievement. (Author)
