Measurement, Evaluation and Accountability in Bilingual Education Programs.
A case for evaluation is developed and procedures for evaluating bilingual education programs are suggested as a guide for the novice evaluator. The following areas are discussed from the point of view of an evaluator: (1) how to plan for evaluation; (2) how to use needs assessment data; (3) the relationship between formative and summative evaluation; (4) the instrumentation process; (5) data collection; (6) data analyses; and (7) production of final reports. A brief section on the more recent consciousness for accountability points out how each of the participants in a bilingual education program can contribute towards accountability. A distinction between research and evaluation is made in order to alert the administrator on the most appropriate use of the information obtained from each. A bibliography, suggesting other sources of information, is appended. (Author/RL)
