Role of Coursework in Evaluation Training.
Nowakowski, Alan
A student's perspective of graduate level training in evaluation is presented. The primary focus is on the training of evaluators. A secondary focus is on the training of users of evaluation. The position presented in this paper is that (1) evaluation is a higher order skill comprised of many individual skills and skill sets or processes, (2) the role of coursework is in providing conceptual schemata for organizing these skill sets and for developing individual skills and processes, and (3) the role of field-based evaluation training is primarily for testing and expanding conceptual schemata to effectively integrate the many skills and processes involved in doing evaluation.
