A Design Taxonomy Utilizing Ten Major Evaluation Strategies.
Willis, Barry
This paper discusses ten evaluation strategies selected on the basis of their general acceptance and their relatively unique approach to the field: (1) State, "Countenance of Evaluation"; (2) Stufflebeam, "Decision Centered Evaluation (CIPP)"; (3) Provus, "Discrepancy Evaluation"; (4) Scriven, "Goal Free Evaluation"; (5) Scriven, "Formative and Summative Evaluation"; (6) Glass, "Trade-Off and Comparative Cost Approach"; (7) Hunter and Schooley, "The Synergistic Evaluation Strategy"; (8) Foster, "The Karlsruhe Evaluation Strategy"; (9) Cremel, "The Cremel Evaluation Strategy"; and (10) Stufflebeam/Scriven/Guba, "Meta-Evaluation, or the Evaluation of Evaluations." Educational evaluators are advised to systematically pick and choose among the elements composing the various evaluation strategies in order to find the combination of elements appropriate for a given evaluative need. A taxonomy of the strategies discussed is included, as well as a list of references. (JEG)
