Development of an Evaluation Model for Competency-Based Instruction. Final Report, July 1, 1978 through June 30, 1979.
Hinely, W. H.
A project was conducted to adapt or develop and field-test an evaluation model for competency-based education, using Florida's Approach to Competency Based Individualized Teaching (FACIT) teacher-training materials for model development and field testing. Because of problems with the production of the FACIT materials, the field test of an evaluation model could not be carried out. Instead, the project sought a model that could be easily adapted to the evaluation of any competency-based program. To meet this revised goal, an in-depth literature review of evaluation models for competency-based programs was undertaken, using a set of criteria that would satisfy the requirements of program description and evaluation. As a result of this review, the Stufflebeam model was identified as one that would provide comprehensive guidelines for planning the evaluation of competency-based programs. This model, however, did not provide sufficient guidance in the description of programs to be evaluated. Therefore, the project developed program-description guidelines that incorporated elements of the Stake evaluation model and the Concerns-Based Adoption Model. (Appendixes to this report provide information about evaluation questions and contain various instruments that can be used in evaluating competency-based programs.) (Author/JH)
