The Report on the 1968 Summer Institute on Evaluation.
Cooperative Educational Research Lab., Inc., Northfield, IL.; Illinois Univ., Urbana. Center for Instructional Research and Curriculum Evaluation.
A 2-week institute trained 30 public school personnel, all involved with the Illinois gifted program, as evaluators. An evaluation design, materials, and instruments were developed; the workshop evolved from evaluation planning to skill training in data gathering techniques. Evaluation in terms of each participant's local situation was stressed. Concerning the participants' progress, results indicated significant shifts in attitude toward evaluation as well as significant gains on the achievement test. The fact that the completed evaluation plans could be used by the participants was considered a meaningful success. Problems involved interaction, heterogeneity, and continued direction; suggestions were made for improvement. Over half of the document consists of materials and instruments used. A detailed text describing the training materials of evaluation used at the institute is available as EC 005 463. (JD)
