Philosophy and Methodologies for the Evaluation of Innovative and Nontraditional Programs. A Report of the National Dissemination Project for Post-Secondary Education.
Shaw, Morley W.
The focus of this paper is on innovative evaluation, evaluation methodologies, and the development of evaluative instruments. Innovative evaluation is discussed as related to comprehensive evaluation, general evaluation with special emphasis, problems in comprehensive and general evaluations, and five components of an assessment model (accessibility, flexibility, personalization, synthesis, and efficacy of resources). Four models that may be applied in the evaluation of innovative and nontraditional programs are discussed; these models are: Competency-Based Evaluation, Self-Evaluation, Systems Analytic Evaluation, and Fortune/Hutchinson Methodology of Educational Evaluation. The development of evaluative instruments is presented as to guidelines, and examples of instruments are given. An appendix provides a copy of a Faculty Acceptance of Innovation questionnaire, an Occupational Status of Former Occupational Students questionnaire, and two handscoring forms. A list of references is included. (DB)
