Preparing Evaluation Reports: A Guide for Authors.
This guide discusses in detail a variety of issues important to the preparation of a good evaluation report. Main sections are concerned with describing the context of the program (locale, school system, etc.); explaining the program (scope, personnel, procedures, etc.); reporting the evaluation (objectives, sample, measuring and reporting change, analysis and presentation of data, etc.); preparing recommendations; and writing the summary. In each section relevant questions referring to matters which should be considered are asked and answered, accompanied in many instances by short example narratives. Additional aid is provided in the form of reference lists of standard works, ordered by difficulty level, on a variety of topics: research methodology, sampling, test theory and construction, and data analysis among them. The guide concludes with an example of a complete narrative report. See TM 000 146 for a description of how the guide was developed. (Author/CK)
