Evaluation Training: Simulation Exercises.

The preparation of this simulation material package is guided by the concept of an evaluator as a decision-maker, based on the definition of evaluation as a continuous assessment concerned with answering decision-making questions. The continuous concept of evaluation is based on the model created by Egon Guba and Daniel Stufflebeam, named by its acronym CIPP--context, input, process, and product evaluation. Sections are devoted to describe and explain the CIPP evaluation model. The intent of this evaluation game is to provide an instructional tool for applying the concept of continuous evaluation to a reading program. Its specific goal is to teach the participant to use one evaluation model as a guide to knowing what to do and what to decide. The materials describe a school system that hires an evaluator who must help conceive a reading program as well as assess it. The incidents described try to simulate actual school situations. There are three kinds of pages in this simulation game, each marked by a different color: white pages carry descriptions of situations, green pages are response sheets, and pink pages carry the "omniscient comments" or answers proposed by the authors.
