Abstract: GUIDELINES ASSIST RATERS IN JUDGING COMMUNITY SERVICES, WITH INTRODUCTORY AND EXPLANATORY TEXTS FOR EACH RATING ASPECT AND SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS, OFTEN WITH EXAMPLES, FOR ASSIGNING A PROJECT TO ONE OF THE THREE TO SIX LEVELS OF A RATING. RATINGS DERIVED FROM IDEOLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS ACCOUNT FOR THE MAJOR PORTION OF A PROJECT'S ULTIMATE SCORE. IDEOLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS INCLUDE THOSE THAT ARE NORMALIZATION RELATED (I.E., INTEGRATION--PHYSICAL AND SOCIAL) AND THOSE THAT DEAL WITH APPROPRIATE INTERPRETATIONS AND STRUCTURES (I.E., AGE-APPROPRIATE, SUCH AS PERSONAL APPEARANCE, SEXUAL BEHAVIOR, ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN; AND CULTURE-APPROPRIATE, SUCH AS LABELS AND FORMS OF ADDRESS AND INTERNAL DESIGN). ALSO CONSIDERED IDEOLOGICAL ARE MATTERS REGARDING MODEL COHERENCY; THE ADMINISTRATION'S COMPREHENSIVENESS, INNOVATIVENESS, UTILIZATION OF PUBLIC RESOURCES, ETC.; HUMAN SCIENCE ORIENTATION; AND REGIONAL PRIORITIES. RATINGS FOR ADMINISTRATIVE PROGRAM ASPECTS VITAL TO PROGRAM QUALITY, PROGRAMMATIC ACCOUNTABILITY, AND COST-EFFECTIVENESS ARE THEN CATEGORIZED INTO MANPOWER CONSIDERATIONS AND OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS. A THIRD RATING AREA IS TAGGED FUNDET AND DEALS WITH PROJECT FEATURES WHICH INDEPENDENTLY BEAR UPON WHETHER OR NOT A PROJECT SHOULD BE SUPPORTED FINANCIALLY BY THE BODY UNDER WHOSE AUSPICES THE RATINGS ARE BEING CONDUCTED. PASS AND FUNDET CHECKLISTS ARE APPENDED, AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE MANUAL ARE PROVIDED. FOR THE PASS HANDBOOK, SEE NCJ-65430.
