A Handbook for Evaluating Secondary/Transition Projects for Handicapped Students.
Harpring, Sharon A.; And Others
This handbook spells out the steps necessary in an effective evaluation of secondary/transition interventin projects for handicapped youth. Initial steps in the evaluation process include describing the evaluation setting, identifying evaluation audiences, stating the evaluation rationale, determining evaluation questions, and identifying evaluation constraints. Subsequently, planning and implementing the evaluation involves determining evaluation approaches and methods, collecting the data, and analyzing the data. Well-written reports are then needed to document program results, provide a framework for replication and/or extension of the program, respond to stakeholder needs, and serve as a point of departure for program improvement. Throughout this evaluation guide, examples are included from current projects to illustrate how evaluation issues can be approached and resolved. Appendices contain worksheets and an annotated bibliography of 23 items. (JDD)
