The Student Evaluation of the Affiliates Project. Project Implementation Guide. A Guide To Assist Local Literacy Programs in Implementing a Student-to-Student Program Evaluation Process.
Literacy Volunteers of America--Connecticut, Hartford.
This paper provides a brief implementation guide to assist programs that wish to replicate the project (a literacy tutoring program that sought to determine student needs and encourage student input), as well as an abstract of the project that created it and summaries of the results and participants' responses at two sites. The guide presents information on preparing the interview guide, strategies for recording interview information, suggestions for adapting the interview guide for local conditions, examples of information analysis, and suggested project outcomes--both product and process. Examples from the project are used throughout the guide. A complete interview form is provided, with questions and directions on how to ask the questions and record the results. Summaries of the project results at the two sites indicated that: (1) respondents were satisfied with the program, although one said that the program did not meet her needs; (2) the most common disappointment was tutors who did not show up; and (3) students experienced life changes as a result of the program. Recommendations from participants included increasing and creating more varied hours and perhaps initiating student support groups. (KC)
