The Application of Formative and Summative Evaluation Techniques to Short Term Adult Education Courses.
Blaney, John P.
This paper identifies a problem concerning the practice of adult education, and describes one person's response to that problem. The problem is the lack of systematic evaluation of instruction in the field of adult education, and, more particularly, the absence of sufficient evaluation literature that is both useful and practical to those who earn their living in continuing education. The response is a developmental project aimed at producing for practitioners a set of materials that can be used in developing and evaluating instruction. The nature of these materials and how some practitioners have been trained to use them are described. The object of the paper is to generate discussion about whether the identified problem is real and accurately described, and how this particular response to it, if adequate, might be improved.
