Bilingual Evaluation Technical Assistance: Workshop Text IV. Planning for Implementation Evaluation.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for the Study of Evaluation.
This volume is the fourth in a series of five texts designed to accompany workshop instruction in evaluating bilingual programs. It is addressed to those involved with bilingual programs generally, educators directly involved in planning and implementation, and research and evaluation specialists. The purpose of this text is to provide the workshop participant with strategies for planning an implementation evaluation. The following topics are treated: the limits of outcome data in program evaluations; views on educational programs and how the views can affect implementation evaluation strategies; categories of implementation questions and the types of information useful for answering them; and alternative strategies for collecting data useful for implementation evaluation. Sample questions to identify key program features for implementation evaluation, data useful in describing the program and examining program dynamics, information regarding the selection of instruments, and samples of the abbreviated program description questionnaire and characteristics of the program's population questionnaire are included.
