Overview to Bilingual Program Evaluation. Participant's Handbook. Bilingual Evaluation Technical Assistance Workshop I.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for the Study of Evaluation.
A participant's handbook for the workshop on an overview of bilingual program evaluation provides instructions and worksheets for the workshop activities. The handbook is accompanied by a workshop text. The workshop is the first of five 4-hour evaluation workshops designed to meet the basic information needs of teachers, administrators, evaluators, and researchers involved in bilingual education. The objectives are to inform participants about the decision-facilitation model of evaluation, features of bilingual education programs in comparison to other programs, and methodological issues in conducting a bilingual evaluation. The other four workshops cover evaluation design, student testing and assessment, implementation evaluation, and evaluation management. The workshop activities involve identifying problems in the simulated bilingual program, identifying different perspectives on the evaluation process and appropriate methodologies, and reviewing the steps in planning a bilingual evaluation.
