Bissell, Joan S.
Intended to assist administrators in the planning, management, and utilization of evaluation, this guidebook is designed as an introduction and supplement to other evaluation materials for bilingual education programs being developed under federal sponsorship, including evaluation models for Title VII projects. General information is provided on the conduct of evaluations, the variety of evaluation methods, and ideas for evaluating both the progress and impact of Title VII programs. This guidebook is an introductory evaluation tool which builds upon ideas generated by project administrators, developers, and evaluation specialists. The contents reflect reactions made by bilingual education experts during a workshop on Title VII Management and Evaluation (September 1979). Specifically, the following are dealt with: Planning and Organizing for Effective Evaluation; Designing the Evaluation; Measuring Project Implementation; Measuring Student Performance; Measuring School, Family, and Community Factors; Analyzing and Reporting Evaluation Results; and, Using the Evaluation Findings.
