The Research and Evaluation Agenda for the Austin Independent School District 1990-91.
Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
The proposed activities of the Office of Research and Evaluation of the Austin (Texas) Independent School District in 1990-91 are outlined. Evaluations and other major projects focus on: (1) externally funded projects; (2) systemwide achievement testing; and (3) systemwide evaluation. Twelve evaluations will assess the impact of programs and grants funded by federal or state resources beyond the local district budget, including aspects of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act. Testing programs mandated by state law and local policy will be coordinated and administered, including both nationally normed tests and the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills. Databases containing student, employee, and other school district information will be maintained and used to monitor local policies and mandates. This document presents all of the programs and requests included for study in 1990-91, the resources allocated to each, and plans for those evaluations finally adopted. For each program, a brief description and relevant issues with related evaluation questions and information sources are outlined. Both budget implications and exemplary school practices were expected to influence all evaluations. (SLD)
