Compensatory and Bilingual Education Program Evaluation Summary, Academic Year 1987-88. A Guidelines and Instruction Manual.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Compensatory/Bilingual Education.
This handbook provides guidelines for the evaluation of compensatory and bilingual education programs in New Jersey. Each local education agency (LEA) is required to complete an annual evaluation of previous year program information for basic skills programs funded totally or in part by state and federal resources. Bilingual and English-as-a-second-language (ESL) programs have special reporting requirements. In addition, separate federal requirements exist for projects funded with resources under Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act. LEAs must report: (1) supportive services and participants; (2) program staff; and (3) racial and ethnic group summaries. Evaluations reported must contain dual process and outcome questions. Potential audiences and the questions an evaluation agency might answer for each audience are summarized in chart form. Instructions for completing the various evaluation forms to ensure that they are properly recorded are included, with sample forms. Ten appendices provide full-time equivalent and age-to-grade conversion tables, achievement data review checklists, a bilingual code sheet, test and subtest codes, a percentile-to-normal curve equivalent conversion table, equivalent statewide standards, empirical norming dates, and implementation codes.
