Institute on Evaluation for Science Programs. Final Report.
Smith, Herbert A.
The institute was designed to provide intensive exposure to evaluation models and some important new evaluation techniques for persons employed in key administrative, supervisory, consultant, or instructional roles in science education. Seventy-seven persons participated in the Institute. A Semantic-Differential scale in pre- and post-response situations was administered in an attempt to determine if significant attitude shifts occurred during the Institute. Participant daily reaction sheets were used and thoroughly reviewed by the Institute staff each day. An "Institute Evaluation" instrument was developed and administered at the end of the Institute. Participant evaluation of the institute was highly favorable. The analysis of responses to the Semantic-Differential Scale demonstrated a highly significant difference between pre- and post-scores surpassing the .001 level in the direction of a positive shift in attitude.
