Annual Evaluation Report on Programs Administered by the U.S. Office of Education: Fiscal Year 1979.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Office of Evaluation and Dissemination.
This ninth annual evaluation report to Congress reviews programs administered by the Office of Education (OE), using data available as of June 30, 1979. After a brief introduction and a summary of the monies obligated for OE evaluations since fiscal year (FY) 1970, the report discusses OE's evaluation strategy, which comprises impact and process studies, technical assistance with evaluations, identification of effective practices, and exploratory evaluations. Highlights of OE studies completed in FY 1979 are reviewed, as are the uses of OE evaluations at the levels of policy and management decisions, budgeting, and legislative activities. Program-by-program evaluations are provided in five areas, and each program's funding history, mandating legislation, goals and objectives, scope operations, effectiveness, and evaluation studies are described. The five areas include elementary and secondary education (with 17 programs), postsecondary education (31 programs), education for the handicapped (13 programs), occupational, adult, and career education (8 programs), and developmental programs (22 programs). The programs covered range from Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) to student financial aid, teacher and resource development, and bilingual, vocational, and special education. Two appendices list 84 OE contracts for evaluation activities and discuss implementation of ESEA's Title I. (RW)
