Department of Education, Washington, DC. Office of Planning, Budget, and Evaluation.
Presented in one volume, this 12th annual report to Congress provides program-by-program summaries of evaluation information on federally funded education programs as of July 1982 (including programs closed out under the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act). Introductory sections present the secretary's summary, listing important findings about major Department of Education (ED) programs; highlights of major evaluation studies completed in fiscal year (FY) 1982 on elementary, secondary, and postsecondary programs; and noteworthy uses of evaluation findings by ED staff and policy makers at federal, state, and local levels. Each program description describes the evaluation study's data sources and covers the program's mandating legislation, funding history, goals and objectives, operations, scope, progress and effectiveness, and contact person. Program descriptions are grouped under 6 ED offices, including elementary and secondary education (with 26 programs), bilingual education and minority language affairs (3 programs), special education and rehabilitation services (24 programs), vocational and adult education (8 programs), postsecondary education (31 programs), and educational research and improvement (17 programs). An appendix enumerates 52 active FY 1982 evaluation contracts, listing the contract number, funding history, brief description, contractor name, contract monitor name, and dollars obligated.
