Generating Outcome Measurements: Economic and Societal. A Guide to Educational Outcomes Measurements and Their Uses. Seminar No. 4.
Mushkin, Selma J.; Billings, Bradley B.
This guide is essentially designed as a teaching aid for those who would inform planners, officials of educational ministires, 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 generating outcome measurements: economic and societal. An outline is presented and is intended as a preliminary "lesson plan." A discussion leader, selected by the group, will select materials 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 the kinds of choices to be made about selecting measures of economic and social effects of education in relation to the objectives of the project or program and the data implications of those choices; (2) Be familiar with the concepts underlying the several economic measurements and related motivational factors; and (3) Have some knowledge of the possible methods of collecting data required for the measurements or of using existing informational sources.
