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 )
7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 458 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 )
12 editions published in 1980 in English and French and held by 391 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)

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 )
7 editions published in 1981 in English and French and held by 297 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 293 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 282 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)

This publication is the product of a five-week seminar held in 1964. this seminar, which brought together outstanding scholars as well as key figures of national governments and international agencies, considered educational planning as a means of advancing education and of linking education more effectively to over-all economic and social development. The representatives were primarily from latin america, western europe, and the united states but also included some from asia and africa. The main aim of the seminar was to bring into sharper focus a variety of key questions and problems which confront educational planners in developing countries. This was done by pragmatically examining the actual experiences of a particular area--latin america. Major ideas discussed were--(1) economic, social, political, and educational conditions in latin america which affect educational planning, (2) the progress made in educational planning, (3) effective linking of economic and social development to educational planning, (4) planning for facilitation of internal changes in education, (5) contributions of educational planning toward coordination and maximum effectiveness of external aid for education, and (6) organizational and administrative arrangements needed to ensure the implementation of educational plans. A list of participants and contributors is appended. This document is available for $3.00 from the unesco publications center, 317 east 34th street, new york, new york 10016. (ds)
