Edited by:


November 2005 | 104 pages | Corwin

Achieve lasting educational benefits through masterfully administered school program evaluations!

The annual process of evaluating school programs raises a legitimate question: how to implement quality program evaluations that will not drain a school's resources, but instead help create a school culture that promotes inspired teaching and high academic achievement-and meets NCLB guidelines? In this updated edition of the bestselling text, authors James R. Sanders and Carolyn D. Sullins demonstrate how an effective program evaluation process can conserve resources while yielding substantial benefits for teachers, parents, students, and schools.

This user-friendly resource provides concise yet comprehensive coverage of school program evaluation through a highly regarded five-step program. Illustrated by examples and case studies, this approach is designed to help educators develop competence and confidence in program evaluation. Both practicing and aspiring educators can learn to:

  • Successfully manage logistical and scheduling problems
  • Strategically approach school politics, ethical considerations, and interpersonal relations
  • Comprehensively organize and analyze information regarding school programs
  • Effectively respond to the No Child Left Behind Act

Discover how to skillfully administer school evaluations that produce lasting educational results!
