The evaluation of the 1981-82 State Compensatory Education (SCE) program, as implemented in the Austin Independent School District, will involve the following major activities: production of an Evaluation Design based on input received from key SCE personnel; production of a Final Report and a Technical Report which present information and documents relevant to the decision questions specified in the Evaluation Design; participation with other SCE staff in the preparation of an annual report to Texas Education Association (TEA) which will describe activities and cost of the 1981-82 SCE program; acting as a liaison with TEA staff regarding the testing of Austin Independent School District (AISD) third, fifth, and ninth graders and those students in tenth and eleventh grades who have not shown competency on the Texas Assessment of Basic Skills (TABS); and production of a Final Report and a Technical Report describing the TABS assessment project in AISD. These activities will require the collection of needs assessment, accountability, process, and outcome data. The evaluation design provides a brief project and evaluation summary, the major decision and evaluation questions to be addressed, other information needs, dissemination plans, and information sources to be used.
