A National Overview of Staff and Program Characteristics 1984-1985. HEP/CAMP National Evaluation Project. Research Report No. 1.
Riley, Gary L.
One of four products of the 1984-85 National Evaluation Project to compile baseline data on characteristics and impacts of High School Equivalency Programs (HEP) and College Assistance for Migrants Programs (CAMP), this report presents a brief overview of the goals, basic research design, and summary of the evaluation project products and a detailed account of HEP/CAMP program features that include: program origins and funding histories, organizational and administrative patterns, staff characteristics, participant profiles, and aggregate summaries of program activities and objectives. The report reveals that 15 HEP and 4 CAMP Programs participated in the evaluation which involved the preparation of student mailing lists, staff surveys, document assembly, and completion of the Project Background Questionnaire. About two-thirds of the programs are associated with colleges or universities. The oldest HEP project was first funded in 1966; the newest in 1982. All current program directors are responsible for on-going program development, program operations, staffing, staff development, and program evaluation. Staff members reflect the student populations served in terms of personal backgrounds, ethnic representation, educational background, and experiences as participants in migrant education programs. Over 80% of staff members have earned bachelor's degrees; over 33% hold graduate degrees; and 70% have credentials in teaching, counseling, or educational administration. (NEC)
