Program Quality Evaluation--Gifted: A Manual.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. for Exceptional Children.
The manual is intended to help local education agencies assess the overall quality of its programs and services for academically gifted students. The approach can aid in future planning by measuring the extent to which current goals are being met. Chapter 2 outlines the program goal approach and sets forth three major goals (and their related objectives): (1) a systematic process of screening, evaluation and reevaluation is used that maximizes identification opportunities for all students, K-12; (2) the scope and sequence of the gifted program at each grade level should provide defined differentiation that goes beyond the course of study intended for the majority of students in that school system at that grade level; and (3) the school system should demonstrate its commitment to gifted education by providing for program growth and development. Chapter 3 proceeds with evaluation questions derived from each of the goal areas and program objectives. Chapters 4-7 outline the evaluation methodology with separate treatment of the following stages (1) establishing a selection sample, (2) collecting data, (3) analyzing data and reporting results, and (4) developing a management plan. Appended materials include sample instruments (student record review, gifted parent survey, administrator surveys, and gifted student surveys). (CL)
