Standards and Procedures for Development and Implementation of an Evaluation Contract.
Wright, William J.; Worthen, Blaine R.
Intended for individuals and/or agencies who provide or require evaluation services, this paper attempts to deal with the lack of standards and procedures for evaluation contracts. The first section of the report, Summary and Overview of Standards and Procedures for Evaluation Contracting, contains a brief discussion of the use of the proposed standards and procedures, a checklist proposed for use in applying the standards and procedures, instructions for use of the checklist, and a flowchart which shows the interrelationships and sequence of major events for applying the standards and procedures. The second section of the report, Rationale and Discussion Relevant to the Development of Standards and Procedures for Evaluation Contracting, extends the discussion and rationale referred to in the first section and is subdivided into the following sub-sections: (1) uses of educational evaluation; (2) conceptual issues in determining when evaluation is appropriate; (3) rationale for use of external evaluation contracts; (4) rationale for specifying contractual procedures; (5) standards and procedures for selecting evaluation contractors; (6) standards and procedures for negotiation with an evaluation contractor; (7) standards and procedures for monitoring an evaluation contract; and (8) applications of the standards and procedures to sample contracts.
