Effective Evaluation for CETA Programs.
Combs, Paul W.; McGough, Robert L.
This monograph is one of 12 that address various topics in the area of CETA/education linkages. They were designed to provide those individuals interested in the development and implementation of CETA/education linkages with information that will serve to enhance the quality of existing programs and facilitate the efficient and effective development of new programs. The purpose of this monograph is to clear up some of the misconceptions about evaluation, redefine the concept, and suggest a means by which effective evaluation of CETA programs can be carried out. Evaluation models discussed include judgmental, goal-attainment, and decision-management. This paper takes the position that a decision-management approach can provide effective evaluation for CETA programs. A particular decision-management approach is examined: the CIPP model (Context, Input, Process, and Product). A suggested format for the final evaluation report is provided. (CT)
