The Role of Educational Outcomes in Evaluation Strategy.
Foley, Walter J.
From a systems analysis viewpoint, an evaluation system is a subsystem that is superimposed on the educational system to provide information for decisions related to its maintenance and goals. Educational outcomes, viewed as a much broader concept than the traditional view of changes in pupil behavior, represent the starting point for any evaluation activity in education. To evaluate an instructional program in terms of all of its significant interactions, an evaluation strategy (plan) is required which systematically provides information concerning both (1) input and output changes caused by related subsystems and (2) output changes caused by alterations of the system under consideration.
