Evaluation Reconsidered. A Position Paper and Supporting Documents on Evaluating Change and Changing Evaluation.
Tobier, Arthur, Ed.
This paper, from the Workshop Center for Open Education, brings together articles dealing with the evaluation of change and the change of evaluation in the public school systems. The document is divided into four main sections: a) Issues and Perspectives, b) Alternative Approaches, c) Documents, and d) Fiascos. The first section deals with evaluation in relation to the horizontal dimension of learning and with competency-based teaching. The second section presents some alternative approaches to evaluation. Documentation is discussed as an alternative, and two specific evaluation programs are presented. The third section presents two aids for evaluation: a guide for reading assessment and a teacher's diagnostic instrument. The Visiting Committee Report from the Vine School in Cincinnati, Ohio is also included. The last section presents the process of evaluation in the technical sense. It deals with the question, How do we make schools work? (BRB)
