Evaluation Design Project: Organizational Study. Annual Report 1980-1981.
Bank, Adrianne; Williams, Richard C.
This report is arranged to display and explain the work of the Evaluation Design Project staff during the 1980-81 grant year. The intent of the entire project is to examine existing district policies, procedures and programs that appear to contribute to systematic use of evaluation and testing for educational improvement, and to make recommendations based on this examination for district guidance. Section I contains an explanation of the first two years of work and the intended efforts for the third. Section II presents a projected framework which emerged after the first year's study of four school districts and was refined after additional case studies in the second year. A draft of the paper "Considerations in Deciding on a District Management Strategy for Linking Testing and Evaluation Practices with Instructional Change" follows Secion II. The remaining five papers explore, from different perspectives, the categories presented in the framework section using data from the work field. The Appendix contains extended descriptions of two districts. (Author/GK)
