Program Quality Review for High Schools: Process, Criteria, and Self-Study.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This document was designed to assist members of a program review team in conducting a program review and to assist school staff and parents in conducting a self-study in preparation for a formal review. The program review process is designed to evaluate the effects of curriculum, instructional methodologies, and effectiveness strategies on students, guide development of an assistance plan, and provide a model for a school's self-study. Chapter I describes the methodology and procedures to be used in a program review, the determination of the quality of a school curriculum and instructional program by means of a set of standards, and the means by which suggestions for increasing the effectiveness of the instructional program might be developed. Chaper II describes the quality criteria and contains cautions for reviewers about the use of the criteria in diagnosing the quality of the school program. Chapter III describes how the transaction between the reviewing team and the school results in an assistance plan for improving the program offered to the students. Appendices list the criteria that describe a high-quality school and present a guide to be used by schools in conducting a self-study. (CB)
