Various aspects of the goals and processes of the evaluation of remedial programs are discussed in this paper. The first section discussses assumptions related to remedial program evaluation in California's community colleges and highlights two perspectives, based on whether the remedial programs satisfy internal and/or external criteria. Next, a review is provided of currently available information on remedial programs and the elements related to effectiveness in successful programs. The following section offers assumptions about factors contributing to the program effectiveness at the state or system level, the institutional level, the programmatic level, and with respect to students and learning in remedial programs. Next, activities are suggested contributing to program evaluation and a model is presented recommending activities and areas of investigation. Issues, problems, and priority concerns are then outlined with respect to the role of management in program evaluation. Finally, a check list of factors influencing efficiency and effectiveness is provided, covering comprehensiveness, institutional factors, and student performance. (HB)
