Schoolwide Project Evaluations: Workshop Guide.
RMC Research Corp., Denver, CO.; Chapter 1 Technical Assistance Center, Denver, CO. Region E.
This publication is a guide with the materials necessary for leading a workshop session on Chapter 1 schoolwide project evaluations aimed at meeting federal accountability requirements. As the packet points out, elementary school, middle school, and secondary school projects differ from the traditional Chapter 1 delivery models and as a consequence are required to demonstrate, through these evaluations, that the schoolwide approach is more effective. This workshop teaches participants about the special evaluation requirements for Chapter 1 schoolwide projects. A list of the transparencies and handouts used in the workshop as well as an outline of the 60-75 minute session are included. The actual guide to the workshop covers the following areas: (1) workshop goals; (2) an overview; (3) options for demonstrating effectiveness (same-school comparison and other-school comparison); (4) meeting accountability requirements (subject areas, achievement measures, comparisons, and grade levels); (5) other school comparisons (description and pros and cons); (6) same school comparison (description and baseline score); (7) choosing an approach; and (8) session evaluation. Throughout the guide, graphics indicate when to use the 14 specially designed transparencies. A handout consists of a 16-page paper, "Meeting the Accountability Requirement for Schoolwide Projects" (Alan Davis and Mary R. Quilling). (JB)
