Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Educational Systems. Final Report. Volume I.
Bressler, Marvin; Tumin, Melvin M.
Volume I discusses the background, findings and analysis, and conclusions and recommendations of a two-volume study aimed at developing a cross-national model to enable the United States and five European democracies, England, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and West Germany, to make more adequate estimates of the effectiveness of their primary and secondary schools. Two major tasks attempted were the development of taxonomy for the classification of claimed and confirmed educational outcomes and a comprehensive measure to indicate a gross educational product. Appendices include an annotated bibliography on the aims and outcomes of education and a case study of the application of the model of educational goals and outcomes to materials published by educational sources in New Jersey. Two articles, "Evaluation of Educational Goals" and "Problems in the Theory and Method of the Classification of Outcomes," are included. A related document is Volume II, EA 002 596.
