A Plan for Evaluation Services.
Biernacki, Gerald J.; And Others
The evaluation of instructional programs is necessary in order to document accomplishments, determine cost effectiveness, establish management control, and provide bases for improving the education of students. The responsibilities and technical requirements of an evaluation system involve the function of the following component areas: demographic information, program evaluation, program auditing, testing, and technical assistance. The evaluation process includes: (1) a generalized needs assessment and identification of the problem area; (2) a focused assessment involving program development, implementation and formative evaluation; and (3) a summative evaluation and dissemination of results. The organization and development of an evaluation system also involves the selection and training of staff as well as the implementation of a systemwide standardized testing program. (JCD)
