An Evaluation of the University of Washington Innovative Fund.
Anderson, Edwin R.
The University of Washington committee on instructional development and innovation is evaluated with respect to their effectiveness as a granting agency. The paper begins with a section defining evaluation and then applies that definition in a conceptual and empirical critique of funded activity. Conclusions drawn in the report include: (1) evaluation should not be required of one-time funding for new course develoPment, (2) the committee should provide the grant receivers with specific evaluation requirements, (3) the committee should accept the responsibility for evaluating the overall funding pattern they establish, (4) the conceptual base of media-related evaluation needs to be changed, and (5) funding for the improvement of existing courses should extend through more than one grant.
