Issues in Program Evaluation
In the 1980s, numerous programs and services developed in colleges and universities to serve students with learning disabilities (LDs). Although there is evidence of the success of individual students served by these programs, there is very little information as yet about formal or systematic inquiry into their effectiveness (Bursuck, Rose, Cowen, & Yahaya, 1989), which is needed to improve the quality of programs and to ensure their continuation and expansion.
