Report of the Inter-Organizational Committee on Evaluation. Internal Evaluation Model.
White, Roy; Murray, John
Based upon the premise that school divisions in Manitoba, Canada, should evaluate and improve upon themselves, this evaluation model was developed. The participating personnel and the development of the evaluation model are described. The model has 11 parts: (1) needs assessment; (2) statement of objectives; (3) definition of objectives; (4) identification of resources related to objectives; (5) strategies for attaining objectives; (6) evaluation strategies; (7) data collection; (8) description of achievement or change; (9) reporting of results; (10) decision making; and (11) relation of evaluation to future goal statements. The model depends on local involvement, with additional support from external agencies. Two pilot projects which were conducted to field test the evaluation model are described; they took place in Midland School Division No. 25 (southwestern Manitoba), and Winnipeg School Division No. 1 (Churchill High School and its feeder schools). A summary of project costs is presented, as well as a number of comments expressing the attitudes of administrators, students, teachers, and parents. Recommendations for further evaluation, particularly teacher self-evaluation, are included. A 12-page appendix describes the model and its implementation. (GDC)
