A Model for Educational Evaluation.
Alkin, Marvin C.; Woolley, Dale C.
An evaluation model is presented for educational decision makers with evaluation defined as "the process of ascertaining the decision areas of concern, selecting appropriate information, and collecting and analyzing information in order to report summary data useful to decision-makers in selecting among alternatives." Areas in special need of evaluation include systems assessment of the range and specificity of educational objectives, program planning, program implementation, program improvement, and program certification or generalizability to other situations. Two feedback loops are explained to distinguish particular evaluation and decision elements for educational systems and instructional programs. This model is compared with the Corrigan-Kaufman six-step problem-solving model. (JK)
