Evaluation of Educational Programs: A Special Report.
National Advisory Council on Education Professions Development, Washington, DC.
The evaluation of educational programs is often inconsistent with the need for imaginative innovations for educational improvement. Premature evaluation, preoccupation with "hard data" developed by the mass use of standardized tests, concern only for final results, lack of imagination, requirements that all projects in a program make provisions for evaluation, and a tendency to construe tentative findings as proof add to the failure of many educational evaluations. The need for sensible programs concerning evaluations is one of the major issues in American education. (Author/SE)
