Evaluation as a Tool in Curriculum Development: The IPI Evaluation Program.
Lindvall, C. M.; Cox, Richard C.
Three roles of evaluation used in Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) projects are defined in this monograph: the regular and systematic evaluation of pupil achievement for the purpose of adapting instructional experiences to individual needs, the continuing evaluation of all elements of a developing educational program as an aid to this development process (formative evaluation), and the evaluation of the results produced by an educational program for purposes of making judgments concerning its value (Summative evaluation). Each role, based on a systematic perception of educational program goals, planning, operation, and assessment, is then described in terms of the operations that the Learning Research and Development Center of the University of Pittsburgh is carrying out in the context of the IPI projects.
