Office of Evaluation and Program Management (ED), Washington, DC.
Detailed information on individual programs is presented in this tenth annual evaluation of federally-funded programs in education. The evaluation information for each program covers its legislative mandate, funding history, goals and objectives, operations, scope, effectiveness, progress, and ongoing or planned evaluation studies. Sixteen elementary and secondary education programs are reviewed in the first section, touching on migrant and bilingual education, institutionalized children, instructional resources, school safety, emergency aid, and teacher fellowships. The section on postsecondary education evaluates 31 programs in language and skills training, continuing education, and school facilities construction that aid students through basic grants, workstudy, loans, and fellowships. Thirteen programs for the handicapped, eight projects in vocational and adult education, and twenty-one developmental programs are examined in the last three sections; among the projects involved are state handicapped programs, disadvantaged and Indian vocational training, interlibrary cooperation, and teacher, women's, drug, and environmental education. Two appendices list all fiscal 1980 evaluation contracts and describe 12 assessments of program evaluability. (Author/RW)
