PER (Prioritizing and Evaluating Recommendations).
Rose, Lowell C.; Bugher, Wilmer K.
A process is presented which uses two activities to obtain individual and group reaction to 20 recommendations selected from the recent studies of schooling. The recommendations cover a wide range of suggestions for improving the quality of education. In the first activity, participants assign a value on a five-point scale to each recommendation. In the second activity, they prioritize the recommendations individually, then work in small groups to reach consensus on the priorities. Materials provided are: (1) general directions for the leader including information on conducting the activities and on summarizing and analyzing the data; (2) an opinionnaire on the recommendations to be filled out by the participants; (3) directions for individual participants; (4) an individual recommendations rating sheet; (5) directions for small groups; (6) a small group rating sheet; (7) a score summary sheet for the small group; (8) a score summary sheet for all groups combined; (9) a work sheet for analyzing the data; and (10) a display board to aid in ranking the recommendations.
