A Proposed Model for Evaluation.
Clark, Donald L.
This paper derives its foundation from recent concepts of accountability in education. Accountability presupposes a determination of the goals (i.e. the mission) of the educational component and what constitutes the achievement of those goals (i.e. evaluation). The basic design for the evaluation program described here is the self-study approach by committee, which is used by regional accrediting agencies. This flexible method may be conducted entirely by internal personnel, may utilize an outside consultant, or may involve a combination of the two. It consists of three major components: (1) an assessment of the present environment, (2) an analysis of the data by members of the study team, and (3) a written summary report to be used as a basis for determining program continuance or modification. This document describes the evaluation program, discusses the various purposes and methods of evaluation, and reviews the related literature. A bibliography is appended. (DC)
