Project Evaluation Methodologies and Techniques.
Soumelis, Constantin G.
Guidelines are presented for project evaluation techniques with emphasis on the management of a project or an educational program. Part One--general considerations--discusses the four basic concepts of the decision-making evaluation model: objectives, evaluative criteria, analysis/synthesis, and evaluation. Stages in the evaluation of a system are also outlined. Part Two--evaluation design considerations--describes the roles of various evaluation personnel; summarizes nine approaches to educational evaluation; lists indicators or evaluation criteria; and presents twelve steps for designing the evaluation. Part Three--examples of project evaluation design--defines the educational system and evaluation sub-system; discusses the role of teachers, students, and headmasters; and characterizes both macro-evaluation and micro-evaluation. The steps involved in curriculum design, experimentation, and evaluation are also briefly outlined. A questionnaire for designing a micro-educational evaluation is appended, as well as interviews with evaluation specialists representing different approaches to evaluation: consequence-oriented; responsive; and goal-free. Forty-one bibliographical references are included. (GDC)
