Report of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program's External Advisory Panel on Evaluation.
Anderson, Beverly; And Others
This report is an evaluation of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) done by an external advisory panel. Panelists were selected in terms of availability and complementary skills. The program was evaluated by the Shepard method which consists of a checklist grouped into the areas of goals and purposes, technical aspects, management, intended and unintended effects, and costs. Each question on the checklist was given, followed by identification of major documents or other evidence obtained and the panel's response. In some instances, tentative judgments were made or recommendations for how to gather additional evidence or suggestions for improving a given area. Section II suggest possible ways MEAP could respond to the panel's findings. Appendices include: panel selection and biases, memorandum of agreement, Shepard checklist and resulting questions, a 4-page review of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (March 1977), a list of the 29 people interviewed, and a 103-item bibliography.
