Evaluation: Evolution (Evaluation as Evolution).
Prevost, Maurice
Five definitions of evaluation are considered: (1) evaluation as measurement; (2) evaluation as the process used to determine how well prespecified objectives have been achieved in measurable performance; (3) evaluation as professional judgement; (4) evaluation as public opinion; and (5) evaluation as tax dollars. The advantages and disadvantages of these definitions are compared. For the administrator, guidelines are established which focus on decision-making, decision models, types of decisions, type of evaluation, global evaluation models, and the evaluation of a teaching program. Forms which are provided in the document may facilitate an evaluation which is systematic, and open to public discussion and scrutiny. (BJG)
