A Technology for Program Documentation and Evaluation: A Pilot Meta-Evaluation.
Gray, Peter J.
Meta evaluation, or the evaluation of evaluations, was applied to a technology for program documentation and evaluation used in a mainstreaming project. The technology consisted of four phases: (1) planning for decision-making; (2) documenting actual program outcomes; (3) implementing decisions; and (4) instituting program renewal. This pilot meta evaluation focused only upon the planning board and detail file tasks of phase 1. These tasks formed a plan for day-to-day project management. The eight people involved in the development of the planning board and detail file were questioned regarding implementation, quality, and use. The pilot meta evaluation methods were generally considered to be clear, thorough, and appropriate; however, several modifications for full-scale meta evaluation were suggested. (CP)
