The Development of a Survey Instrument for Evaluative Priorities: A Field Test.
Kelly, Edward F.; Bunda, Mary Anne
In order to examine empirically the priorities that different groups place on a common set of evaluative characteristics as they apply to a specific problem, a survey of five principal groups composed of professional evaluators, E.S.E.A. Title III staff, graduate students, local school staff, and administrators was conducted. An eighty-five item instrument employing a seven-point scale for applicability ratings was developed. Analysis suggests differences between some groups on some of the items. The device and methodology reported should improve communication between evaluators and clients, help focus evaluations in an efficient manner, and identify specific decisions that characterize the evaluative enterprise. A survey problem statement, instructions for completing the survey, distribution of responses for each item, and other relevant statistics are included. (Author/LR)
