Experts' Opinion: A Powerful Evaluation Tool.
Nevo, David
Experts' opinion is proposed as a valuable evaluation tool. Advantages of this method include the relative cost effectiveness when compared with other data collection methods. It is a time-saving method important in formative evaluation when a decision must be made concerning implementation of a course of action. When experts are carefully selected, their opinions add to the credibility of the evaluation. Experts' opinion may be used for the assessment of project goals and strategies which need to be evaluated at an early stage of the project. A systematic process for using experts' opinion consists of five major stages: (1) object identification; (2) sampling of experts; (3) presenting questions to experts; (4) obtaining experts' responses; and (5) synthesizing opinions. A large scale evaluation project, the Tel Aviv Evaluation (TAE) Project utilized this process. The TAE was developed to evaluate the projects included in the Tel Aviv Reinforcement and Enrichment Program to provide decision makers with relevant informtion to improve the Tel Aviv, Israel public schools.
