Guide to the Development and Evaluation of Community-Based Instruction.
This book chapter provides a checklist of various considerations related to the development and evaluation of community-based instruction for children with disabilities. The checklist is designed to serve as an organizational framework for persons wishing to make systematic decisions regarding the establishment of a community-based instructional program or to guide the evaluation of such a program. The checklist is not designed to be used as a rating instrument, as there are no universally acceptable criteria for evaluating the items on the list. The checklist covers: (1) selection, preparation, and management of instructional environments; (2) environmental inventories; (3) administrative considerations such as legal, financial, policy, type and training of personnel, and personnel roles; (4) transportation; (5) program goals, objectives, and IEPs (individualized education plans); (6) social validation; (7) instructional factors such as delivery, grouping, and scheduling methods; and (8) reinforcement and correction.
