The Use of Formative Evaluation Procedures in the Development of a Mathematics Laboratory.
Miller, George R.
The procedures used in the initial development of a Mathematics Laboratory within the Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) Mathematics Program are reported. The thesis of the report is that in the development of educational programs, especially those which are complex, attention should be directed both to the design of the program and the design of its evaluation, both formative and summative. Using the Lindvall-Cox model framework, it is suggested that one product of each phase of the development effort should be a revised "Goals-Plan-Operation-Assessment" outline, with such an outline then being used in the subsequent phase to guide its installation and evaluation. The Evaluation Outline presented contains in a concise form a description of the program at this state of its development. (Author/DB)
