Assessing Expected Outcomes of Education: What Every Student Should Know and How to Assess It.
Chiwona, Peter H.
The primary role of education is the production of positive changes in the learner. Teachers make decisions regarding effective experiences conducive to helping students change their behaviors. Evaluation provides evidence to help teachers and students attain desired goals of instruction and the objectives of education. Four types of evaluation are appropriate for four major types of decisions in education: context evaluation, input evaluation, process evaluation, and product evaluation. Evaluation instruments offer an operational definition of the matrix of content and behaviors. The instructional system design is a decision-making operation involving decisions about material to be learned, by whom, when, where, how learning should be evaluated and improved, and what resources should be involved in preparing and providing for learning. The learning and evaluation process is presented in diagramatic form. (DWH)
