Program Review and Evaluation: Integrating Results into Decision Making.
Poulton, Nick L.
Typical characteristics of program reviews, illustrations of to whom the reviews relate in a university setting, and conditions and expectations that may enhance the use of the results of program reviews are described in this report. It is argued that program reviews do not serve all levels of a university equally; the primary beneficiaries of the review are the faculty and chairperson of the unit, while the central administration benefits the least. It is explained that program reviews will be utilized most in an administrative climate that emphasizes openness and collaboration and in situations where the program review serves the particular information needs and issues of concern to the user. Realistic expectations as to the usefulness of reviews is another aspect to be considered in the design and implementation stages of the review. (Author/PHR)
