Systematic, Cooperative Evaluation.
Nassif, Paula M.
Evaluation procedures based on a systematic evaluation methodology, decision-maker validity, new measurement and design techniques, low cost, and a high level of cooperation on the part of the school staff were used in the assessment of a public school mathematics program for grades 3-8. The mathematics curriculum was organized into Spirals which approximated grade levels but allowed students to pass from one Spiral to another within grades. The evaluation staff consisted of members from the school program: the superintendent, the budget analyst, and the math-science supervisor; members from the funding organization: the director of the Regional Education Council and the evaluation coordinator; and the evaluators: the program evaluator and the evaluation consultant. Evaluation success was attributed to the insurances for preserving decision-maker validity, the cooperation from the school system, and the enhanced data interpretations due to matrix sampling techniques.
