LINC Resources, Inc., Columbus, OH.; Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
Four papers address approaches to evaluate the implementation of the individualized education program (IEP) provisions of P.L. 94-142, The Education for All Handicapped Children Act. The papers are "Auditing the IEP System: A Self-Audit System for Use by Local Education Agencies" by Beth Stephens and Daniel Macy, which examines a 10-step self study approach; "Education Theory and Evaluation Criteria for Individualized Education Programs" by Richard Iano, which contrasts the effects of two belief systems on the IEP criteria; "The Individualized Education Program (IEP) as a Vehicle for Delivery of Special Education and Related Services to Handicapped Children" by Hill Walker, which addresses IEP processes corresponding to the letter and the spirit of the law; and "A Planned Change Approach to the Implementation of the IEP Provision of P.L. 94-142 by Patricia Gillespie which examines a systems approach. Responses to the papers by a panel of educators are summarized and followed by recommendations for guides or models which would offer alternative self-study techniques to LEAs. (CL)
