Evaluation of "Blueprint for the Future": Literature Review and Evaluation "Tool Kit."
This literature review and evaluation "tool kit" provides a summary of the research literature about the evaluation of large-scale intervention policies like the Blueprint for the Future program of the Scarborough (Ontario, Canada) Board of Education. This report is intended to assist in creating a realistic plan for the Blueprint evaluation. An introduction covers the general concerns that must be considered when evaluating program implementation. Evaluating process versus outcome, fidelity versus impact, and program components and outcomes is considered. General evaluative methods are reviewed. The rest of the report deals more specifically with the evaluation of the Blueprint program process and outcomes. Sections on process and outcomes each discuss: (1) consultation; (2) intervention; and (3) staff development. Appendixes list three instruments that are available for summative and formative evaluation of Blueprint in the area of teacher interventions, role conflict and ambiguity, and attitudes toward mainstreaming. A fourth appendix provides examples of items from response choice questionnaires. (SLD)
