Uses of Outcome Measurements: A Guide to Educational Outcome Measurements and Their Uses. Seminar No. 2.
Mushkin, Selma J.; Billings, Bradley B.
This guide is essentially designed as a teaching aid for those who would inform planners, officials of educational ministries, school administrators, principals, and teachers about educational outcome measurements. In outline and graphic form, the guide presents topics for discussion in a seminar dealing with uses of outcome measurements. An outline is presented and is intended as a preliminary "lesson plan". A discussion leader, selected by the group, will select material appropriate for his or her group, adding and illustrating materials that are of particular interest to his or her country's (or region's) educational system. Steps required to use the seminar format are listed. At the end of the seminar those participating should: (1) Understand that outcome measurements have many policy applications; (2) Be able to identify the ways in which outcome measurements are used to carry out the several policy and management purposes; (3) Understand the limitations of outcome measurements now in use; and (4) Be able to identify and apply those outcome measurements that are especially relevant to the participants' work.
