Department of Education, Washington, DC. Office of Planning, Budget, and Evaluation.
This 13th annual report to Congress provides program-by-program summaries of evaluative information on federally funded education programs for fiscal year 1983. The format for each program description has been revised to make it responsive to the reporting requirements of the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA). Accordingly, each entry is divided into three major sections: (1) program profile, covering legislation, recent funding history, purpose, eligibility, and other information on requirements; (2) response to GEPA 417(a), containing major sections of information specified in the mandate, such as program goals, progress and accomplishments, cost effectiveness, plans for improvement and legislative recommendations, supporting studies, and data on participants; (3) response to GEPA 417(b), containing summary information on evaluation contracts. An introductory section is provided which highlights analyses of the Educational Consolidation and Improvement Act of 1980. Thereafter, program descriptions are grouped under the following Department of Education jurisdictional headings: (1) Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, (2) Office of Bilingual Education and Minority Languages Affairs, (3) Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, (4) Office of Vocational and Adult Education, (5) Office of Postsecondary Education, and (6) Office of Educational Research and Improvement. An index is provided, along with an appendix listing active planning and evaluation contracts during fiscal year 1983. (TE)
