Assessing External Evaluative Information Needs.
Smith, Stephen M.
A National Institute of Education-sponsoring project investigated how evaluations of nontraditional programs could be performed to maximize the utility of evaluation findings. This led to a conceptual model of the evaluation process which included the following elements: (1) identification of information needs; (2) design, collection, and analysis of information; and (3) dissemination of information. To determine the information needs for the study of nontraditional programs, 70 policymakers in postsecondary education were interviewed. The five major needs identified addressed two issues: (1) whether the needs of the learner were satisfied; and (2) whether resources were effectively used. (EMH)
