Evaluation from an LEA Perspective: Proceedings from an AERA Symposium. Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (66th, New York, New York, March 19-23, 1982).
Thompson, Bruce; And Others
The views of local education agency (LEA) evaluators tend to be underrepresented in the evaluation literature. This symposium was organized to fill this gap. The non-LEA symposium participants (Carol H. Weiss and Bruce Thompson) were asked to pose questions to the LEA participants (Steven Frankel, Montgomery County (MD) Public Schools; Freda Holley, Austin (TX) Independent School District; Carl Novak, Educational Service Unit 18, Lincoln (NE); Ellen Pechman, Orleans Parish (LA) Public Schools; and Floraline Stevens, Los Angeles (CA) Unified Schools). The questions addressed such issues as the role of the LEA evaluator, the impact of evaluation on LEA policy, the effects of budget cutbacks, careers in evaluation, evaluation use for decision-making, and evaluator credibility.
