Evaluation of Scientific Work Experience Programs for Teachers: Current Practice and Future Directions.
Sloane, Kathryn; Young, Judy
This paper describes the current evaluation practices employed by Scientific Work Experience Programs (SWEPs) across the country. A survey on current practices in evaluation was administered to SWEP program directors in 1995. The survey contained questions about current evaluation requirements and strategies and a list of project goals and objectives that had to be rated according to importance. Results were analyzed to determine the degree of commonality across SWEPs in their evaluation purposes, contexts, and strategies, and the degree of consensus on important goals and objectives across the projects. It was concluded that there is sufficient commonality in these areas to support a multi-site collaborative evaluation effort. Issues relating to the design of a collaborative evaluation strategy are discussed. Contains 25 references, a summary of results, and a list of survey responses. (Author/JRH)
