A Simplified Example of How to Extract More Planning Data from Existing Evaluation Instruments.
Alvir, Howard P.
A step-by-step method for designing and improving evaluation methods is presented for educators who are in the position of evaluating an educational gathering of adults. This method is to insure that evaluation instruments are: (1) accurate enough to provide valid data; (2) short enough to be filled out by a large group of evaluators in a hurry to go home; and (3) relevant enough to elicit concrete comments. It shows how to tabulate the evaluation accurately, rapidly, and systematically. Part I of the document is an evaluation summary and a complete evaluation report. Part II shows how to develop summaries and complete evaluation reports. Part III explains how to apply this evaluation approach to different situations. (BJG)
