Kovaleski, Joseph F., Ed.; Moe, Elayne, Ed.
This workshop manual focuses on validation procedures designed to foster program improvement rather than compliance monitoring. The manual is in eight chapters. Chapter 1 looks at the elements to be evaluated--organization and management, training, student assessment, design and implementation of classroom interventions, team work, screening a referral to multidisciplinary evaluation, and outcomes--and the Guidelines for Review of Instructional Support Team (IST), 1994-95. Chapter 2 discusses scoring validations, focusing on criteria for basic features, questions and answers to guide evaluations, and a glossary of IST terms. Chapter 3 includes the guidelines for writing validation reports, official report forms, and a sample report. Chapter 4 outlines preparation of the validation study, including the chairperson s checklist and a sample schedule. Chapter 5 provides interview techniques and sample interviews. Chapter 6 provides the team meeting checklist. Chapter 7 focuses on presenting results through providing feedback and validation report procedures. The final chapter includes six appendices: (1) sample letter; (2) sample agenda; (3) simulation: interviews; (4) training cartoon; (5) guidelines for travel reimbursement; and (6) forms. (ND)
