Evaluation of Continuing Education Programs.
Wedemeyer, Charles A.
American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education, v33 n5 1969
Evaluation in continuing education must be continuous, not a one-shot process. Steps in evaluating include: preparing goals and objectives, selecting starting points appropriate to the clients, determining programs and attitudes, measuring progress, interpreting evidence of progress, and then using the evaluation to help students by providing guidance and motivation and helping teachers to clarify objectives and plan instruction. Evaluation programs are not used widely for several reasons: 1) It is still not perceived as a necessary part of the professional activities of program developers; 2) program developers regard it as of lower priority than their other activities; 3) it commands little financial support; 4) program developers often feel they are incompetent to carry out such evaluations; 5) evaluation is threatening to some program developers; 6) a truly professional education climate may not exist in the program development unit.
