A Method for Enhancing Training and Monitoring of Program Adaptions and Adoptions in New Situations.
Stuck, Gary; Rubin, Roberta
Described here is a rating scale to provide feedback about the success of training and of program implementation when a new program is being adopted. It allows project personnel to determine whether trainees possess the knowledge and skills necessary to implement a new program for which they are being trained. It also informs project personnel of the extent to which a program has been implemented. The elements of the rating scale include columns containing descriptions of the activities and attributes associated with the educational program, criterion levels for each attribute, data sources and monitoring or documenting activities for measurement of each attribute, reports of the level of implementation, and an indication of whether the criterion level has been met. The level of implementation is stated in terms of precise levels of compliance. Information concerning the implementation of program attributes is collected by internal and external program evaluators using multiple techniques. Programs adapted for use in new situations can be evaluated using the same attributes and criteria used for the original program. (Author/JM)
