Research and Training Associates, Inc., Overland Park, KS.; Chapter 1 Technical Assistance Center, Overland Park, KS.
Materials are presented for conducting a workshop on increasing participants' awareness of how to integrate assessment options into a comprehensive plan. A typology for assessment options is provided that includes: (1) paper-and-pencil tests; (2) performance assessments; and (3) personal communications options. Assessment options are discussed in terms of their "fit" with the requirements of Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act, including standardized testing, measuring progress on other desired outcomes, and using evaluation information to improve the quality of Chapter 1 programs. Systems for organizing assessment information are described, including observational and attitudinal checklists, anecdotal records, and portfolios. A sample planning document is included, and technical issues are discussed. With regard to length, it is estimated that an overview of the workshop can be presented in 1.5 hours, and that the workshop can be extended with the use of videotapes, additional activities, and planning for a comprehensive assessment strategy. Attachments comprising the greater part of the document include: (1) 46 figures (overheads); (2) several handouts; (3) 7 appendixes of support materials for the various units; (4) a section on aggregating data for desired outcome examples; and (5) a list of 34 references.
