Lancaster, F. W.
Based on the author's Guidelines for the Evaluation of Training Courses, Workshops, and Seminars in Scientific and Technical Information and Documentation (UNESCO, 1975), this paper describes various approaches to both the summative and the formative evaluation of educational programs in the field of scientific documentation. Procedures are described for (1) evaluation of participant reaction, (2) evaluation of learning required, (3) evaluation of behavioral change, and (4) evaluation of program results. Validity, reliability, and universality of evaluation results, efficiency of evaluation procedures, and application of evaluation results are also discussed. References are provided. (FM)
