Handbook of curriculum evaluation by Arieh Lewy( Book )

8 editions published between 1970 and 1978 in English and French and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed to meet the needs of experts working on curriculum planning and evaluation throughout the world, with special attention to the needs of developing countries. It presents both a model for curriculum evaluation and practical guidelines for evaluating new instructional materials. Part 1 contains a single chapter that briefly describes models that have greatly affected empirical work in curriculum evaluation and describes some facets of the evaluation approach proposed in this book. Part 2 defines stages of curriculum development and proposes evaluation activities appropriate for each of those stages. These six chapters encompass the whole range of evaluation activities in sequential order, beginning with the decision to develop a new program and ending with the decision to recycle or rewrite an existing program. Part 3 consists of five chapters that describe various methods and strategies applied to curriculum evaluation, focusing on the specific features of those strategies that fit the needs of curriculum evaluation.

Investing in the future : setting educational priorities in the Developing World by Jacques Hallak( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in 4 languages and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Broadly defined, human resource development (hrd) involves the education, training, and utilization of human potentials for social and economic progress. Of five interdependent energizers for hrd (education, health and nutrition, the environment, employment, and political and economic freedom), education is an essential factor for improving all the others. Since the economic crisis facing developing countries poses grave problems for education and hrd, setting new priorities becomes a major priority for policymakers. This book, aimed at synthesizing fundamental educational policy issues, is divided into four parts. Part I is a comparative overview of the past, the present, and possible future conditions affecting education's progress in the developing world. In all societies, the goals of improving and expanding hrd are amply justified on ethical, cultural, social, and economic grounds. Part ii, addressed to policy makers, discusses the various concepts, issues, factors, and methods to consider when setting objectives, priorities, and strategies for educational adaptation and expansion. Part iii, addressed to practitioners, treats the implementation of educational policy, planning, and programs and projects. Following a discussion of various management and educational delivery issues, the special needs of underserved marginal groups are outlined and suggestions for institutional improvement are made. In part iv, addressed to donors, the implications for international cooperation are examined. (Mlh)

Regional disparities in educational development : diagnosis and policies for reduction by Gabriel Carron( Book )

14 editions published in 1980 in English and French and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To complement a volume of case studies, these four papers and an introduction discuss the problem of regional disparities in educational development from several different perspectives. Varying points of view are presented on the relationship between regional educational disparities and socioeconomic, political, and cultural development; the pertinence of regional frameworks to analyses of educational disparities; and the problems associated with policies to reduce regional disparities. The introduction by the editors summarizes the papers' arguments about ways to reduce disparities. Philip Foster draws on data from Africa to examine regional inequalities in educational and economic development and to argue for the free play of supply and demand in reducing disparities. Using European countries as examples, Pierre Furter questions whether regional equalization can be reconciled with inter-regional cultural diversity. The paper by Stephen P. Heyneman reviews the problems involved in planning the reduction of regional disparities. The final paper, by Zsuzsa Ferge, Eva Havasi, and Julia Szalai, describes Hungary's use of state planning to reduce regional educational disparities. (Author/RW)
Planning the location of schools : an instrument of educational policy by Jacques Hallak( Book )

9 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work synthesizes 14 case studies from different countries that were developed as part of the "School Map" project. The project developed a methodology to identify and to project the spatial characteristics of an educational system so that the existing distribution of educational opportunities can be diagnosed and an educational plan designed to reduce disparities in the provision of educational services. A summary of the principal conclusions of the investigation, found in the first four chapters, indicates the diversity of the fields of application of the school map in educational planning. Chapter 5 puts forward a number of preliminary conclusions reached in the course of the research work into concrete problems connected with the school map. Chapters 6 through 10 deal with methodology and are designed as a working manual for educational planners and administrators. The problems of the implementation of plans are discussed, and some conclusions are drawn regarding the limitations of the planning process. (Author/MLF)

Qualitative aspects of educational planning by International Institute for Educational Planning( Book )

14 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, a compilation of 12 symposium papers presented by participants from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds, examines the qualitative aspects of educational planning with particular reference to developing countries. Following an overview paper that expresses the need for a change in educational planning strategy, the various aspects of the concept of quality in education are considered. The majority of papers discuss problems faced by developing countries in raising the quality level of some areas of their educational systems -- E.G., secondary education in India and higher technical education in the ussr. Two concluding papers discuss methods of measuring or assessing quality in education. An edited discussion bearing on each paper topic is provided. A related document is ed 044 767. (mlf)

The process of educational innovation : an international perspective by Raymond S Adams( Book )

8 editions published in 1981 in English and French and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of recent educational innovation in seven different countries aims to provide an understanding of how innovation and reform can be made to work by focusing on process. Chapter 1 discusses common concerns such as national identity, as well as methodological problems. Chapters 2 and 3 describe the contrastive styles of educational planning in Indonesia, where innovation is based on research and development, and West Germany, which has approached educational reform primarily through legislation. While the efforts at educational innovation in Sierra Leone discussed in chapter 4 focus entirely on teacher training, the Israeli approach described in chapter 5 involves a project that has evolved at the municipal level without official support from the national Ministry of Education. Chapter 6, which describes the pragmatic-realist Malaysian "experiment in systematic adaptation," is followed in chapter 7 by a description of New Zealand's efforts to overcome "institutional inertia" by decentralization and innovation in the designs of school buildings. Finally, chapter 8 discusses the Ghanian attempt to introduce practical work into a basically traditional academic curriculum. Chapters 9 and 10 summarize the book's findings and conclusions and call for further research into the nature of educational innovation. (Jbm)
Population growth and costs of education in developing countries by Ngoc Châu Ta( Book )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and French and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study reported in this document attempted to determine the effect of population growth on education costs in developing countries, given various assumptions as to the future trend of fertility and mortality. The population factor was examined along with other factors influencing educational costs, such as the improvement of enrollment ratios, the need for a qualitative improvement in the educational system, and the long term trends of the unit costs of education systems. Comparison of these factors, it was hoped, would provide data helpful to educational planners in deciding on an educational development policy to be followed. In order to ascertain more precisely the possible effects of these factors on educational costs, four national case studies were made in Ceylon, Colombia, Tanzania, and Tunisia. These case studies, limited to first-level education and teacher training, were conducted on a standard pattern to allow for a comparative analysis. Each case study is reported in a separate chapter, and two other sections of the document contain a synthesis report of the case studies and a model that shows the effect of demographic growth on the development and cost of first-level education and teacher training.

Indicators of education systems by James N Johnstone( Book )

6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 11 chapters with 54 data tables and 29 diagrams, the author discusses the theory, problems, and uses of educational indicators. He defines educational indicators as characteristics that point, with more or less exactness, to general or overall aspects of an educational system. Chapter 1 examines the concept of an educational indicator and the considerations to keep in mind when constructing indicators. Chapter 2 presents statistical issues involved with indicators, including their reliability and validity. The next two chapters look at both the theoretical and empirical aspects of developing indicators, while chapters 5 and 6 suggest national and regional indicators of educational inputs, outputs, and processers. The presentation and use of indicators for educational planning and research and for the classification of educational systems are covered in chapters 7-10. In the final chapter the author summarizes the implications of indicator development and use. Three appendices review methodological and statistical aspects of educational indicators. (Rw)

Educational cost analysis in action: case studies for planners by Philip H Coombs( Book )

25 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is the second in a series of three documents, which together contain 27 case studies on the uses of cost analysis in educational planning. The case studies are presented to help planners and administrators see how cost analysis can be used to improve the efficiency of their educational systems, or to get the best value existing resources. Topics examined in these eight case studies include the cost of introducing a reform in primary education in the Ivory Coast, the role of cost analysis in the 1962 reform of primary education in Madagascar, the use of educational cost models in planning the extension of compulsory education in Norway, marginal costs for marginal decisions about team teaching in Barbados, the role of cost analysis in planning a teacher-training program in Poland, and the costing of a program for expanded secondary education in Brazil. Other topics consider the use of cost-benefit analysis both as a guide to educational resource allocation in India and as a tool to compare the rates of return to education in Colombia. (Author/DN)
Education, work, and employment by Jacques Hallak( Book )

11 editions published between 1976 and 1980 in English and French and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains four studies covering various approaches and having different scopes for studying the problem of access to jobs and the role of education and training as criteria for recruitment. The first study, on the metropolitan area of Panama, covers all sectors of activity. It is based on a questionnaire administered to 80 companies to survey employers' personnel policy. The second study, on the two cities of Jakarta and Padang in Indonesia, covers four sectors of activity (hotels, construction, trade, and textiles). It is similar in other respects to the first study and deals with the same questions. Focusing mainly on the public sector in Kenya, the third study is an exploitation of existing statistical files (specially on the teaching profession and some specific occupations in the civil service). It discusses the issues of the rationale behind the changes in education and career patterns. The fourth study, on the Department of the Bouches du Rhone in the south of France, consists of a survey of six firms and some training institutions to demonstrate the complexity of interactions between the education system and the world of work.
