Meta-Evaluation Applied: The Evaluation of a Large Scale Evaluation System.
Wentling, Tim L.; Klit, John A.
This meta-evaluation sought to evaluate the personnel, procedures, and impact of a statewide evaluation system. Personnel evaluation provided both formative and summative information, as well as information pertaining to future selection of evaluation personnel. The evaluation of procedures led to many revisions and refinements in the procedures and instrumentation of the evaluation system. The impact study supplied data to indicate data that the evaluation system did have considerable impact in bringing about changes and improvements in local plans. Significant side effects included the reorganization of State Educational Organization (SEA) consultant services. In addition to meeting the informational needs for revision of the system in Illinois, the meta-evaluation has yielded data to justify the retention of the three-phase system in future years.
