Evaluating the Effectiveness of Administrative Training Products.
Behrman, Edward H.; Evans, William
This paper clarifies the distinction between evaluating the effectiveness of student curriculum products and evaluating the effectiveness of administrative training products. Four product evaluation designs are described and critiqued along eight interrelated dimensions: the definition of product effectiveness; criterion measures of effectiveness; the determination of users' pre-treatment levels of ability on the criterion; types of comparisons; sample size and comprehensiveness; the determination of acceptable criterion performance; confounding variables; and intervening variables. Finally, a practical yet legitimate strategy for measuring effectiveness of administrative training products is proposed. (Author)
