Derivation of Goal Statements and Their Impact upon Educational Evaluation.
Wohlferd, Gerald H.
It is axiomatic that an evaluation demands a statement of goal, for without a goal there can be no judgment of progress or success. Goal statements spring from two major sources: experience or theory. One source has its foundation in the present. The other has its genesis in the envisioned future. The former is generally a comparison with the present. The latter is a comparison to a position on a theoretical continuum. In this paper, the two bases upon which goal statements are formulated are explored. The advantages, disadvantages, and implications in relation to findings of each type are discussed. (Author)
