A Methodological Gap--The Completeness of a Goal Intent.
Jones, Leon
The notion that completeness of a goal intent will cause a fundamental change in the whole character of evaluation methodology is discussed. In addition, a series of methodological gaps are described. The focus was the lack of a methodic way to: (1) Establish pertinent goals; (2) Acquire goals such that the original intended outcome remain invariant throughout the evaluative process; (3) Ascertain whether the decision-maker uses the data provided by the evaluator; (4) Provide useful data for improvement and modification during the evaluative process; (5) Validate the measurability of a goal intent; (6) Train decision-makers as a participant in the evaluative process; and (7) Institutionalize a formal discipline for training educational evaluators.
