Measurement of the Perceived Characteristics of Evaluation Recommendations.
Gold, Robert S.
A study was conducted on the measurement of the characteristics of innovation. The results or specific recommendations of evaluation studies may be assessed for their likelihood of adoption and implementation based on these characteristics. As the recommendations are perceived more positively, the level of utilization should increase. The semantic differential technique developed by Osgood, Succi, and Tannenbaum was used to measure the characteristics in this study. The Statistical Package for the Social Sciences Reliability sub-program was used to assess the internal consistency of the scales to identify which recommendations are positively perceived. With this knowledge, an evaluator/change agent may be better able to judge where efforts should be directed. (DWH)
