Evaluation of Personnel, Institutions and Curriculum: A Seminar, Caracas, July 1-31, 1970. Final Report.
Watson, Paul E.; And Others
Professors in the University of Pittsburgh School of Education were invited by the Venezuelan Ministry of Education to develop a seminar following three general objectives: (1) obtain points of theoretical reference about the evaluation of personnel, curriculum, and institutions, (2) present an overview of principles, problems, and examples of methodologies of evaluation, and (3) apply theory, models, and instruments to the educational situation in Venezuela. These objectives were addressed in 19 sessions where an effort was made to provide an in-depth focus on a limited number of evaluation techniques while providing relevant theoretical coverage. Problems faced included addressing the sessions to the different levels of sophistication of the participants, conducting the sessions in a building with a high noise level and uncomfortable seats, and maintaining seminar continuity for participants with work conflicts. The seminar was generally viewed as a meaningful first step in the training of Venezuelan evaluators. The United States/Venezuela partnership in financing this special program was deemed positive.
