Committee Hearings as an Evaluation Format. Research on Evaluation Program, Paper and Report Series, No. 22.
The use of a committee hearing format for educational evaluation is considered. The paper is divided into three sections: (1) a description of the concept of investigative committees as practiced by the United States Congress; (2) a review of recent implementation of a committee hearing format in educational evaluation; and (3) an outline of a committee hearing approach with comments directed at the application of the format. Section one is concerned with the areas of the parent body, authorization, committee membership and staffing, investigation and hearing activities, and committee reports. Section two begins with a developmental perspective, and discusses the application of procedure, and two examinations of the committee hearing. The final section, presented in outline format, displays the committee concept along with comments suggesting the potential of the analogy for educational evaluation. (Author/GK)
