The Design and Analysis of Evaluation Studies.
Wiley, David E.
The terms evaluation, assessment, and appraisal are often used interchangeably in research on schools and pupils. Guidelines for their use and some of the similarities and differences in their meanings are explicated. The concept of evaluation is narrowed to refer to use of information on pupil behavior. Four separate components of evaluation--standards, objects, vehicles, and instruments--which have been confused in some studies, are outlines and defined. The last three components and their relations to certain notions about the design, analysis, and measurement aspects of evaluation are discussed. Research is cited, examples are given, and a model is constructed. Related documents are EA 002 408 and EA 002 409. (MLF)
