An Application of the PMI Model at the Project Level Evaluation of ESEA Title IV-C Projects.
All of the papers presented as part of a symposium concerned the application of the Planning, Monitoring, and Implementation Model (PMI) to the evaluation of the District of Columbia Public Schools' programs supported by the Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title IV-C. PMI was developed to provide a model for systematic evaluation of educational programs to determine their effectiveness in achieving goals and objectives. The PMI model involves a clear statement of intended objectives, a monitoring of inputs, and observation of results. Reporting forms require this information in an evaluation design at the beginning of the project year in the fall, an interim report in the late winter, and a final report after completion of the project year. Examples from three different PMI evaluated projects are used to illustrate the three parts of PMI. This paper demonstrates the applicability of the PMI model at the project level, when an experimental research design must be part of the evaluation approach, and includes aspects of the model contributing to reporting, dissemination, and decision-making. Also included in the paper are the responses of eight of the nine 1980-81 project directors to a questionnaire comparing PMI to other evaluation methods. (Author/MLF)
