Who Evaluates the Evaluator?--A Case Study of Evaluators Practicing Their Precepts.
Drezek, Stan; And Others
The Evaluation Services component of the Education Service Center, in San Antonio, Texas, evaluated nine Special Education programs conducted by the Center. It was decided to evaluate the actual impact of these reports, which examined the programs' major accomplishments. The thirty professional staff involved in the programs were surveyed. Fifty percent of the staff agreed that Evaluation Services had had a positive impact on their programs. However, their ratings and comments clearly reflected a need for specific improvement in the conduct of the evaluation process. Data are given on the findings of the survey and the actions taken by Evaluation Services. A copy of the survey instrument is appended. (JD)
