An Evaluation Design for Continuing Conference Programs in Career and Value Education Within the Liberal Arts.
Stanton, Charles M.
The Continuing Conference for the Liberal Arts was organized to test the thesis that interdisciplinary studies involving the basic arts and sciences can be structured in a way to provide superior preparation for immediate entry into careers not always associated with undergraduate education. The programs of Augustana College, Denison University, and Saint Joseph's College are described as illustrative of the variety of programs maintained by Conference institutions. This paper attempts to formulate a model to evaluate these diverse programs taking into consideration the primacy of personality development and attitudinal changes within the programs under study. A model is proposed with these desired outcomes: (1) collection of data on which to ground decision-making with reasonable expenditure of resources; (2) documentation of evidence so that outside evaluators can make quasi-independent judgments and be persuaded by the statements of outsiders; and, (3) cooperation with program staff with regard to the development of evaluation design, self-evaluation, and report writing.
