McGill Evaluation System Resource File Bibliography [and] User's Guide.
Cranton, P. A.
A user's guide for the McGill Evaluation System of instructional evaluation and a bibliography are presented. The guide covers the initial planning of an evaluation, data collection, and making changes in a course or program. The procedure used in the system contains the following sequential steps: describing the purpose of the evaluation, deciding the aspects of the instruction to be evaluated, determining what information will be collected, setting criteria for change or decision, collecting, analyzing, and interpreting information, and making changes. Steps in collecting information are to determine sources of information and techniques for data collection, and to select or develop instruments. Research instruments and techniques that may be used are described. Selecting criteria for teacher and/or course improvement, program evaluation, or personnel evaluation are considered. Brief comments are presented regarding methods for analyzing information for several types of instruments or techniques. The time and resources available to actually implement changes and to plan in detail what will be done with the evaluation results are reviewed. (SW)
