The Regional Seminar on Educational Evaluation held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, from 7 April to 2 May 1975, was organized as a follow-up activity to a study carried out by the International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP, Paris) in 1973-1974. The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development had in 1973 requested the IIEP to "develop practical methods for evaluating major education aspects of Bank-financed education projects during and after project implementation, propose technical criteria for such evaluations and suggest the necessary means and machineries for the application". Instruction was provided in: specifying educational objectives - techniques and procedures; educational measurement; test construction; attitude scale construction; questionnaire design; curriculum development and evaluation; interaction analysis; and sampling. The lecture sessions focused on: general aspects of evaluation - purposes, types, and uses; specific aspects of examinations for assessing standards of performance and selection; the design of non-formal education and training programs; general guidelines for the use and implementation of education tracer systems; approaches to the evaluation of educational systems through the use of cross-sectional surveys. Results of individual and group projects are appended. (Author/MV)
