a. Describe how decisions about programs are typically made in your school. What evaluation approach would work in your school? Explain your reasoning.
If it would not, what other approach would be useful?

b. Ms. Simpson is a member of the faculty at Strom Thurmond Middle School. The students are grouped by grades, but within the grades, a team of
teachers cooperates to develop interdisciplinary lessons. Individual members of the team have been assigned teaching responsibility for the areas of
English, mathematics, science and social studies. Ms. Simpson has decided to evaluate her area of responsibility in the eighth grade English section of
the instructional program.

Case Study

Her evaluation includes the following:
1) Administration of a standardized English achievement test in September and March. (This will most probably be the Measure for
Academic Progress (MAP). She plans to compare the pre-test results and the posttest results to the national norms for the test.)
2) Monthly interviews of a percentage sample of her class to determine student reaction to the English portion of the instructional program.
3) Keeping a record of student progress so their potential for high school performance can be assessed for English Tech, regular English or Honors English.
4) Observations by an outside observer monthly, using a scale she has devised to record students during class discussions.
5) Comparison of the performance of Ms. Jackson’s class to on the standardized tests with performance of the eighth-grade class EDAS 5343 Page 10
at other junior high schools in the district. Using what you have learned about the different approaches, determine if Ms. Simpson has a viable evaluation design. What questions should she be addressing? Comment on the organization of her evaluation: Could she improve the design?
