Evaluating Nursing Education: A Research Manual.
Jako, Katherine L.; And Others
This manual details a research design for the longitudinal and comparative evaluation of nursing education currently being conducted by the National Second Step Project at Sonoma State University. Chapter 1 describes the purpose, background, and context and substance of the Second Step model. Chapter 2 considers the design of a multicampus evaluation research approach in terms of the survey population and sample, objectives, setting a timetable, and adopting a methodological approach. In chapter 3 the evaluation methodology is detailed with regard to sources of information and data collection tools and techniques (standardized tests, project-designed instruments, and observations and document review). Chapter 4 outlines evaluation procedures as they pertain to data collection, data processing, providing feedback to participants, and communication and decision making. The focus of chapter 5 is analysis with particular attention given to qualitative and quantitative data analysis, data validity and reliability, and data synthesis and interpretation. Chapter 6 concentrates on planning, writing, editing, and disseminating the final evaluation report. (A prospectus is appended.) (YLB)
