A Regional Conference on Validation: How, What, and Why.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
This report documents the proceedings of a conference on the validation of exemplary educational programs, products, and practices presented by the Regional Exchange of the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL/RX). It is different from other conference syntheses, as it includes the process for creating the conference as well as the conference content and the evaluation of it. The objectives of the conference were to give participants the opportunity to explore the state of the art in validation; to provide the time and the environment for each SEDL/RX state team to work on its own validation concerns; and to arrange a forum and begin to pool the collective knowledge of the SEDL/RX region regarding validation. Papers were presented by William Hinze, Christine Dwyer, Bud Grossner, John Osborne, Preston C. Kronkosky, Jack Lumbley, Bill Reaves, and Sharon Adams. The conference evaluation consisted largely of determining if the objectives were attained through questionnaires and monitoring state validation efforts. (DWH)
