Desirable Qualifications for Personnel Conducting Educational Program Evaluations and Audits.
Newman, Warren B.
A study was made of professional qualifications for personnel employed as program evaluators and auditors. These qualifications, according to operational or theoretical models, are necessary to assure local school districts of obtaining the services of competent and ethical personnel. Findings of (1) a review of literature, (2) a national survey of directors and staffs of research and program evaluation departments of public schools, (3) a review of representative contractual relations and job qualifications in use, (4) a survey of ten university training programs, and (5) a survey of legislators to determine the attributes of an evaluation report which make it acceptable as a basis for decision-making, are reported. Criteria for employment of program evaluators and auditors are recommended, and the political implications of an accrediting process are discussed. (Author/BW)
