Evaluation of the 1982-83 ECIA, Chapter II Computer Education Project.
Dade County Public Schools, Miami, FL. Office of Educational Accountability.
The Dade County Public Schools (Florida) Department of Basic Skills (DBS) computer education program was evaluated. Education Consolidation Improvement Act (ECIA) Chapter II funds were sought for maintenance of existing school computers; establishment of software consortium; and the acquisition of additional microcomputer equipment. The project was evaluated by observation of materials purchased and distribution patterns, using information obtained from DBS, the Purchasing Department, and the Office of Budget. Supplemental data were obtained from a telephone survey of schools participating in the computer education program. The evaluation determined that the allocation of project funds differed from the original proposal. However, all objectives were met. Recommendations resulting from the evaluation were made. These included refunding of the ECIA Chapter II Computer Education Project for another year; and consideration of the possibility of emphasizing completion and operation of the software consortium in proposals for continuation of this project. The Telephone Interview Schedule is appended. (DWH)
