Applied Strategies for Curriculum Evaluation.
Brandt, Ronald S., Ed.
Evaluation of a middle school humanities program is the focus of this report. It explains how to identify information needs and set priorities, how to obtain information from a variety of sources, and what to do with the data collected in terms of formulating recommendations for the school board. The variety of evaluation approaches presented are geared toward supplying alternatives for program planners. Some of the questions raised include: (1) how the findings of the evaluation plan will be presented; (2) what decisions will be made considering the data, and who makes those decisions; (3) what benefits are produced by the program; (4) what relationship exists between what was planned and what is to be implemented; and (5) whether the learning experiences of this program displaces others of higher priority. Chapters by W. James Popham, Deborah G. Bonnet, Robert E. Stake and James A Pearsol, Michael Scriven, Elliot W. Eisner, William J. Webster, Blain R. Worthen, and Henry M. Brickell are included.
