Conducting Summative Evaluation (Cost-Impact Studies). Module 11.
This staff development module is part of one of three groups of career guidance modules developed, field-tested, and revised by a six-state consortium coordinated by the American Institutes for Research. This module is the eleventh in a series on developing a comprehensive career guidance program at the high school level, designed to aid guidance personnel responsible for developing student focused programs. The goal of this module is to provide users with an understanding of the importance of summative evaluation and the basic skills necessary for program evaluation including evaluation design, sample, instruments, administration, criteria, and decisions based on data results and analyses. The module format consists of an overview, goals, objectives, outline, time schedule, glossary, readings, skill development activities, and bibliography. A Coordinator's Guide is also included with detailed instructions for presenting the module in a workshop setting as well as the facilitator's roles and functions, and the criteria used in assessing the participants' achievement of module objectives.
