A School District Guide for Evaluating Programs for the Gifted.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of ESC Education Planning and Development.
This manual is designed to help local school district personnel evaluate programs for gifted pupils. It is not intended to replace evaluation which relies on strict statistical analysis. It can, however, supplement the results of such evaluation or, in the absence of such evaluation, provide a picture of the coherence and consistency of the components of a program for the gifted. The manual contains a Documentation Questionnaire, which a school district can use to describe the various components of its program, and an Evaluation Rating Scale, which is to be used to assess the information presented on the Documentation Questionnaire. The preliminary sections of the manual are intended to provide a background for program evaluation and instructions for filling out the two instruments. The following program components are considered: (1) needs assessment, (2) program goals and objectives, (3) rationale, (4) staffing, (5) identification, (6) instructional program, and (7) evaluation. The purpose of each component and the focus the evaluation of each component will take are discussed. Instruments used to assess gifted individuals are included in the appendix. (Author/PN)
