Summary

This resource guide is intended to help in planning special education program evaluations. It focuses on: basic evaluation concepts, identification of special education decision makers and their information needs, specific evaluation questions, procedures for gathering relevant information, and evaluation of the evaluation process itself. Preliminary information discusses the nature of evaluation, the people involved, and ways to maximize the utilization of evaluation results. Then, the following eight steps to planning a local evaluation are detailed: (1) getting started; (2) describing the program; (3) writing evaluation questions; (4) planning collection of information; (5) planning analysis of evaluation data; (6) planning the evaluation report; (7) managing the evaluation; and (8) meta evaluation. Four appendices provide a meta evaluation checklist, a list of 8 references on evaluation utilization, a list of 11 specific strategies to enhance evaluation utilization, and 15 worksheets keyed to the 8 planning steps.
