Evaluation Problems in Performance Contracting.
Barrows, Thomas S.
This speech discusses performance contracting as educational research, notes some evaluation problems, and proposes solutions to these problems. The term performance contracting, according to the report, denotes an administrative rather than an instructional innovation. The author observes that the understanding of instruction and learning derived from contracts is minimal because strategies are chosen on atheoretical bases and no provisions for generalization are made. Aggregate performance indexes are presented as superior to individual ones, and item sampling is suggested. (Author)
