Feedback Consequences and Steps Toward Implementation: A Guide to Educational Outcome Measurements and Their Uses. Seminar No. 6.
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 feedback consequences and steps toward implementation. 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 that the use of output measures may lead to a change in educational outputs as well as in the system itself; (2) Understand implications of implementing and using measurements for teachers and administrators; (3) Have a better grasp of the interactions of educational outcomes with school systems, students, and families; and (4) Understand methods of implementing outcome measures.
