Delaware Computer Inservice Program Evaluation.
Dusewicz, Russell A.; Beyer, Francine S.
This document represents the final report for an evaluation study of the Delaware Computer Inservice Program. The purpose of this program was to increase the use of computers in traditional subject areas. The program was pilot tested in three schools, each from a different district in Delaware, during the 1987-88 school year. The focus of the evaluation was on the study of the implementation of the program, its effectiveness, and its suitability for replication in schools throughout the state. This report begins by reviewing the background and purpose of the study and describing the program, including its goals and components. The three principal components are identified as training of trainers, inservice training, and implementation. The evaluation design and procedures are then presented. The evaluation focused on questions related to the three components, and the evaluation instruments used are described in detail by program area. The results and conclusions of the evaluation are presented for each component. On the basis of the evaluation data collected, recommendations are made in the areas of computer availability, computer literacy, program coordination, and focus of training. The evaluation forms used in the study are appended. (JLB)
