Microcomputers and Evaluation. Evaluation Guides: Guide Number 1.
Gray, Peter J.
The potential uses of microcomputers in evaluation research are discussed in this pamphlet. At the beginning, a matrix is provided showing the relationship between the steps in the evaluation research process and common types of computer software. Thereafter, the guide is organized sequentially around the evaluation research activities that are listed down the side of the matrix: (1) proposals and planning, (2) study management, (3) data collection, (4) data analysis and interpretation, and (5) reporting. The discussion relates the characteristics of the different types of programs and their utility to each of these steps in the evaluation research process. Types of software discussed in relation to these activities include word processing, databases, test generation, calculations/statistics, graphics, and telecommunications/networking programs. (TE)
