Gray, Peter J.
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory's (NWREL) Research Evaluation Program provides assistance to educators based on its research, development, testing, and training activities concerning new methodologies for educational evaluation. This report describes the assistance provided to educational practitioners in 1984 through support materials, consultation, and direct training. New method assistance focused on microcomputer use in evaluation; several publications were provided. A number of aids were provided to practitioners interested in cost analysis and in policy analysis. Training programs focused on microcomputer use in evaluation and cost analysis. Over 150 pages of this document are divided among four appendices: (1) Cost Communiques, a NWREL newsletter describing research in cost analysis; (2) materials for a workshop using microcomputers in evaluation and assessment; (3) visual aids to accompany a presentation on microcomputers; and (4) materials and visual aids for a cost analysis workshop.
