Making the most of college : students speak their minds by Richard J Light( Book )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do some students in the United States make the most of college, while others struggle and look back on years of missed opportunities? What choices can students make, and what can teachers and university leaders do to improve more students' experiences and help them make the most of their time and monetary investment? And how is greater diversity on campus--cultural, racial, and religious--affecting education? How can students and faculty benefit from differences and learn from the inevitable moments of misunderstanding and awkwardness?"--Jacket

Learning from experience : evaluating early childhood demonstration programs by Assembly of Behavioral and Social Sciences (U.S.)( Book )

9 editions published in 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prepared by the Panel on Outcome Measurement in Early Childhood Demonstration Programs, this report attempts (1) to characterize recent developments in programs and policies for children and families that challenge traditional approaches to evaluation, and (2) to trace the implications of these developments for outcome measurement and for the broader conduct of evaluation studies. The report is divided into two parts. Part I begins by tracing the historical evolution of demonstration programs and their evaluations from 1960 to the mid-1970s. Next, the policy issues and programs that have evolved in recent years and that appear to be salient for the 1980s are examined in detail. Some important implications of these programs and policy developments for outcome measurement and evaluation design are then identified. Finally, implications of the evaluation process for the dissemination and utilization of results, for the organization and conduct of applied research, and for the articulation between applied research and basic social science are pointed out. Part ii includes six background papers which were prepared by the panel members together with outside consultants to facilitate the panel's discussion of the evaluation of children's programs. Each paper covers a specific type of program: health, day care, family service, preschool compensatory education programs, and programs for the handicapped. In addition, a paper on the communication and dissemination of the results of evaluations is included. (Mp)
