Annual Evaluation Report. Volume I, Fiscal Year 1980.
In this tenth annual report on federally-funded education programs, the authors give an overview of evaluation activities in the new Department of Education and describe changes in the department's techniques and uses of evaluation. The first chapter discusses the role of evaluation in ensuring that federal funds for education are spent efficiently, examines the department's evaluation model and the dissemination of its results, and notes the introduction of time-saving techniques in assessing program evaluability, objectives, management, and service delivery. Major department evaluation activities at the elementary, secondary, and postsecondary levels and in special category programs are summarized in chapter two. The authors assess the results of elementary and secondary programs for low-achieving students, point out changes made by programs to enhance postsecondary educational opportunity, and list results of categorical programs in vocational, adult, career, handicapped, community, teacher, Indian, and drug abuse education. The final chapter highlights findings on program legislation, effectiveness, management, or content from 19 selected evaluation studies. (Author/RW)
