ABSTRACT The lack of yearly program evaluation contributed to the failure of FLES in the fifties and sixties. Now that communities and states are recommitting to the notion of FLES, program evaluation must be incorporated from the outset. This article provides a rationale for program evaluation, and discusses the development and use of the FLES Program Evaluation Inventory (FPEI). The questionnaires are provided for duplication, and step-by-step instructions are given for the administration, tabulation, and reporting of the five different forms.
