Planning for Implementation Evaluation. Participant's Handbook. Bilingual Evaluation Technical Assistance Workshop IV.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for the Study of Evaluation.
A handbook for participants of a workshop on the process of describing and documenting the implementation of bilingual programs is presented. The workshop is part of the Bilingual Technical Assistance project. Workshop objectives are to: generate implementation questions appropriate for a given bilingual program; apply a strategy for describing the factors that influence a particular bilingual program; identify relationships between program inputs, context, processes, and outcomes; and know criteria for selecting instruments appropriate for gathering implementation data. The following aids are presented: worksheets; a list of factors involved in program dynamics; a list of factors affecting attitudes toward the bilingual program; sample questions to identify key program features for implementation evaluation; a list of kinds of data useful in examining program dynamics; and a list of advantages and disadvantages of four methods for implementation evaluation (i.e., examining records, conducting observations, using self-report measures, and using interviews).
