Faced with significant budget challenges, many districts cannot afford to hire an outside consultant to conduct a formal evaluation of their gifted program. As an interim solution, districts may wish to conduct their own, in-house program evaluation. "Gifted Program Evaluation: A Handbook for Administrators and Coordinators" is designed to assist administrators in designing, conducting, and reporting on an in-house evaluation of their gifted programs. Written with the busy administrator in mind, the handbook includes a clear, step-by-step process for evaluating each of the main elements of gifted programs as well as reproducible worksheets, surveys, and resources to facilitate a thorough evaluation grounded in best practices in gifted education.
