Evaluation in Adult Basic Education: How and Why.
Grotelueschen, Arden D.; And Others
The book provides a detailed rationale and illustrative instruments for adult education program evaluation, emphasizing adult basic education. It is particularly helpful to persons who have program evaluation responsibilities as a part of administrative or teaching responsibilities. Chapter 1 focuses upon the various contexts of adult basic education and provides a background for examining the relationship of evaluation to them. Chapter 2 describes various definitions, potentials, and limitations of evaluation. Chapter 3 focuses upon decisions about what ought to be evaluated and how evaluation might be conducted. Chapter 4 is an overview of administrator responsibilities that directly influence the nature and quality of instruction available in an adult basic education program. The next five chapters contain in-depth descriptions of how and why evaluation is related to five areas of administrator responsibility: determining program emphases, assessing the adequacy of program resources, ascertaining program outcomes, evaluating staff development activities, and evaluating instruction and instructors. The final chapter presents suggestions for conducting an evaluation. The book concludes with a four-page bibliography, a glossary of evaluation terms, and a reprinted version of "A Blueprint for Program Evaluation." (Author/BP)
