Design and Implementation of a Discrepancy Analysis Model for Education Programs.
Davis, Benjamin G.
The management and evaluation of education programs requires a timely, accurate information system. The discrepancy analysis model described aids in providing this information in a format that may be processed and yields the method by which such a system may be developed and implemented. Building from specific statements of expected project performance, this study showed how questionnaires may be developed, analysis plans prepared, and analytical reports produced to enable a reviewer to quickly learn the status of an education project. The system provides two basic types of data for decision-makers: basic descriptive information to permit statistical summaries of program operation to be prepared and reviewed, and operational consistency data which allow decision-makers to review project operations and to function by management-by-exception, concentrating their efforts on those projects most in need of technical assistance.
