Summary

This document is a transcript of a workshop on planning and constructing performance-based evaluations for project directors of transition programs for students with disabilities. It provides background information on the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) and presents strategies for implementing and managing a performance-based plan. The use of logic models to develop agency plans is explained, along with logic model critical elements, including: (1) clarify the expectations and priorities of others important to program success: (2) get a reasonable level of agreement on goals, strategies, and required inputs; (3) identify key external factors likely to affect performance; and (4) explore the costs and usefulness of alternative performance measurement systems. The transcript addresses measuring performance by collecting the right information and reporting results and meaningful information. The importance of collecting performance information is emphasized. The last sections address design evaluation and implementation evaluation, using customer feedback, and measurable objectives. Appendices include information on the Government Performance and Results Act, the performance information spectrum, using logic models in devaluing performance measurement systems, examples of logic models, components of a measurable objectives and key terms. (Contains 22 references.) (CR)
