Evaluation. A Training Module. School Personnel Utilization.
Jones, G. Brian; And Others
A series of modules was prepared by the School Personnel Utilization Project to assist personnel in building the necessary skills for the development of organizational change strategies and collaborative, collegial educational problem solving capabilities. This module focuses on the evaluation process in the context of elementary and secondary schools, with some examples and problems drawn from district-level situations. It is divided into five sections: (1) formulation of a general evaluation approach including an overview of educational decision-making processes, (2) specifying product and process objectives, (3) measuring outcomes, (4) analyzing and synthesizing data, and (5) using and reporting results. Included in each section are references for further reading, a simulation exercise, review questions, and answers to the objective section of the review questions. A tape/slide presentation introducing the module is available from The Florida State Department of Education. (Author/DGC)
