The Consortium of Washington Education Centers conducts a planning retreat at the conclusion of each academic school year. At this time, the Consortium coordinators and superintendents, as well as the Consortium staff, meet to determine the activities and strategies for the coming year. The decision-making process used at the retreat needs data to facilitate the planning of future activities. The design of the evaluation study was intended to be used in this decision-making process. This study was intended to answer three major questions concerning the 1970/71 activities of the Consortium as viewed by the coordinators and superintendents of member districts: (1) what personal/professional value was received from the activities as they were conducted, (2) how effective have the activities been in moving the Consortium to completion of the goals and objectives, and (3) how do the Consortium coordinators and superintendents feel about the degree of accomplishment of each of the goals and objectives of the organization.
