Maximizing Information from Implementation of Innovative Courses.
Churchman, David
Discussed are four different approaches to the evaluation of the implementation of innovative courses. The first approach is that of Alkin and his associates at UCLA. This group emphasized the need to collect information on the degree to which an innovative course is implemented for the purpose of taking corrective action to achieve full installation before performance data are collected. The second approach is associated with the work of Stallings, who limited the evaluation to classrooms in which the key elements of an innovation actually had been implemented by classroom teachers. The third approach emerged from the work of Hall and Loucks. It suggests eight levels of use of an implementation. The fourth approach is the approach suggested by the author to maximize the information from experimental implementation of innovative courses. It requires completion of eleven steps. Assumptions, disadvantages and advantages of this approach are also discussed. (HM)
