Problems in the Evaluation of IMPACT on Experimental Schools.
Theimer, William C., Jr.
The National Institute of Education (NIE) funded 18 school districts to implement programs that were to result in 'holistic' change. Two kinds of data were expected --those generated to measure the impact of the Experimental Schools Program and those generated by field studies, which were discussed in other symposia. In measuring impact by the level II contractors, two major problems faced researchers: the omission, in many instances, of qualified educational researchers in the selection of personnel to staff the various projects; conflict, over-testing of local staff and students, and wasted effort on the part of both teams of evaluators, which resulted from the forced separation of summative and formative evaluation between two different groups; and some lack of required data and the acquisition of useless data, which resulted from a failure to state clearly the objectives in measurable terms.
