Handbook in Evaluating with Photography.
Templin, Patricia A.
This handbook is intended to help educational evaluators use still photography in designing, conducting, and reporting evaluations of educational programs. It describes techniques for using a visual documentary approach to program evaluation that features data collected with a camera. The emphasis is on the aspects of educational evaluation dealing with questions about what transpires in the program. How useful photography is to evaluators may be viewed as a function of how important they think descriptions and interpretations of program operations and activities are rather than learning outcomes. The descriptions of events, activities, and social interactions in a program represent pictures of the social organization of the curriculum and learning conditions. Attention is also given to problems of various threats to validity and sampling plans. (Author/GK)
