Guidelines for designing a report card to measure community progress toward achieving the six National Education Goals are provided in this document. The purpose of a community report card is to evaluate how well a strategy was implemented and how well the strategy moved the community closer to its goals. The public report card also establishes a baseline that describes the community's status in relation to its desired outcomes, and designates a community definition of each national goal. Ways to gather information for measuring community goals are briefly described. A well-designed report card can advertise the community's commitment to educational innovation, reveal discrepancies between community status and members' perceptions of it, and sustain community effort. The appendix includes individual sections on each national goal, which contain objectives, questions to ask, measures to use, and information resources. (LMI)
