Undertaking Program Comparisons in Curriculum Evaluation.
Edmonston, Leon P.; And Others
The notion of comparing in curriculum evaluation is discussed, and some approaches to making comparative judgments about program effectiveness during the formative and summative evaluation stages are examined. Sources of information provided by external and internal program comparisons are described, and a model in which a policy capturing procedure for predicting administrative decisions based on comparison data is advanced. Evaluation methodologies appropriate to comparative evaluation are discussed with support given to a matrix sampling procedure for comparison selection based upon program costs, performance appraisals, and program spinoffs at different points in product development.
