Evaluation as a Decision-Making Tool.
Guba, Egon G.
This speech examines three traditional definitions of evaluation, presents a new definition, and describes how this new concept of evaluation functions. The new definition calls educational evaluation "the process of delineating, obtaining, and providing useful information for judging decision alternatives." Practical applications of this new model are presented and the model's advantage over traditional forms of evaluation are explained. (JF)
