Transactional Evaluation in a Medical School Setting.
Ginther, John R.
This paper is an extended example of transactional evaluation; extended to show not only that the narrow purpose of a particular evaluation can be a means to further ends, but also to document the developmental character of process in a dynamic setting. The primary purpose of the study was to determine what preceptors or advisory teachers emphasize in their activities as they work with the senior medical student and his ambulatory patient. The basic study was planned in 1961 and data were gathered during 1962. The data analysis, which involved the creation of rationales for organizing findings and the planning of innovations, continued into 1964. The resulting changes in the particular instructional unit were still in effect in December of 1971, and information useful in further evaluation has been gathered systematically during the intervening years.
