Evaluation for Decision-Making: A Case Study.
Matuszek, Paula; Holley, Freda
A case study is presented of the use of decision questions as the basis for designing an evaluation. Discussed are the need for a mechanism for ensuring the usefulness of evaluation results, reasons for trying an approach based on decisions identified as important, and the specific approaches and procedures used in one high school curriculum evaluation focused on decision making. Special emphasis is given to techniques found useful and pitfalls to avoid. The paper can serve as a guide to other evaluators facing similar situations who want to try a similar approach. Problems not yet overcome are also presented for discussion. (Author/RC)
