Evaluating Special Education Preservice Programs: Resource Toolkit
Author(s): Jill Lammert, Sarah Heinemeier
Organization: Office of Special Education Programs, U.S. Department of Education
This Toolkit was designed to provide evaluation resources for grantees of OSEP's Personnel Development Program, but it contains useful information for other grantees as well. The Toolkit is not intended to provide a lengthy discussion of every aspect of project evaluation. Rather, it is designed to highlight important issues to consider when planning and conducting a PDP project evaluation—with a specific focus on summative evaluation—and to offer a variety of resources related to evaluation, including sample templates and forms, links to professional standards and other educator resources, and recommended readings on research and evaluation.
