Annual Evaluation Report on Programs Administered by the U.S. Office of Education: Fiscal Year 1978.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Office of Evaluation and Dissemination.
Based on data available through June 30, 1978, this report covers all programs administered by the Office of Education (OE). Introductory sections describe OE's evaluation strategies (involving impact and process studies, technical assistance, and identification of effective programs); present highlights from OE evaluation studies in fiscal year 1978; and discuss the uses of evaluation activities, including their effects on budget, program, and legislative decisions. Federal programs' impact on access to quality education is reviewed in eight areas, including basic skills, improving educational practices, and reducing financial barriers. Program-by-program descriptions look at each program's funding history, mandating legislation, goals and objectives, operations, scope, effectiveness, progress, and evaluation studies. OE's 15 elementary and secondary programs include such areas as disadvantaged and bilingual education, educational innovation, and equalization. Thirty postsecondary education programs range from student financial aid to legal training. For the handicapped, 13 programs extend from preschool grants to regional resource services. Career, occupational, and adult education includes 10 programs. The 22 developmental programs go from teacher training to educational media. Two appendices list OE evaluation contracts as of January 1979 and discuss implementation of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (RW)
