Abstract:

Educational alternatives may be as narrow in scope as new classroom instructional packages or as extensive as reorganization of schools or completely revised programs of instruction through all grades. Whatever their scope, alternatives are a change in practice. As such, they should be evaluated by looking at the resulting changes in outcome. The discussion is centered on evaluating demonstration programs or alternative practices. The level of decisionmaking involved is either the state or the local level.
