Educational Program Auditing: The Research Perspective.
Seligman, Richard
The results of a major study on the topic of evaluation and decision making which was conducted at the Center for the Study of Evaluation are presented. The purpose of this paper is to explain what we know about independent educational accomplishment audits and the manner in which they have been carried out. As part of the larger study cited above, data on the audits was obtained for a group of 39 bilingual education projects. The audit reports covered the bilingual programs during the 1970-71 school year. These reports were analyzed by at least two independent reviewers. The reviewers' ratings were recorded on the Audit Data Sheet, an instrument designed to tap essential information on the manner in which the audit had been conducted. In those cases where the raters' judgments did not coincide, a third rater reviewed the audit report in question and served as an independent adjudicator. This procedure yielded interesting and useful data on three principal features of the educational program audit: the procedures employed by the auditors, their judgments on the quality of the evaluation procedures, and the scope of the audit activities.
