Consumer Report on School Evaluation Models.
Gallegos, Arnold M., Ed.; And Others
This report was prepared to provide information on school evaluation practices to the education community and the general public. It is intended to assist individuals in selecting school evaluation models that assess the dimensions and components of a school that are considered most relevant and most related to school improvement. Work on the report itself was preceded by an intensive search for extant school evaluation models from various sources. In all, 51 models were received from national organizations, school districts, state departments of education, and various agencies with an interest in evaluation. Using these models, research associates developed profiles based on key characteristics, and models were then classified into the typology/evaluation matrices that are presented in this report. After the user identifies the appropriate matrix, types, purposes, processes, and levels, focus characteristics are used to find models with the components the user needs. A final step is obtaining detailed descriptions that can be adopted or adapted for the user's purposes. Four charts summarize model characteristics. Four appendixes give profiles of national, regional, state, and local education agency models. (Contains 6 references.) (SLD)
