Considerations and Recommendations for Evaluating Bilingual Education Programs.
Martin, Paula
General considerations in evaluating bilingual education programs and data aggregation at the state and national levels are presented. Federal and state information requirements and accountability guidelines include the needs for information/data for various audiences, for evaluation resources, for increased project capability to conduct evaluations, for development of interest in evaluations, and for special studies. Evaluation standards for bilingual education programs consider (1) the evaluation model's characteristics; (2) its information coverage; (3) its general design characteristics; (4) its specific design characteristics; (5) data collection types and techniques; (6) analytic procedures; and (7) the evaluation's utility. An evaluation checklist of context and process variables to consider when conducting a bilingual program evaluation is presented. Specific criteria for report writing are discussed and a data analysis checklist with sample forms for displaying student achievement data is included. Useful suggestions for evaluation report writing and design developement are given. (PN)
