Colorado Migrant Education Resource Center (CoMerc), Longmont.
The 11 processes and models, developed between 1979-82 for use by local migrant education projects, include guidelines for assessing the project's needs for external resources in all program areas and for conducting an inventory of the materials and equipment needs. A process for analyzing staffing is followed by tips for hiring bilingual staff. A survey questionnaire is provided for use in determining migrant parents' needs for training/information sessions at a statewide conference. A paper on how to ensure program continuity for migrant children provides suggestions for coordination within a district. A proposed evaluation design for a local project covers the planning session, fiscal year 1981 objectives and possible evaluation strategies, charts summarizing the complete design and showing an example of the instrumentation for different phases, teacher/aide report forms, and parent feedback. A checklist of tasks/considerations for implementing local evaluation covers selection processes, recordkeeping, procedural issues, orientation/training needs, coordination tasks, and application/use of results. Next is a process for developing awareness of criterion-referenced testing and selecting a criterion-referenced test. Parent (in English and Spanish) and staff input forms for use in evaluating summer programs proceed a survey form for obtaining feedback from local project personnel on CoMERC (Colorado Migrant Education Resource Center) services.
