Report on the Revision of the CSE Evaluation Kit. Research into Practice Project.
This document describes the revision of the Center for the Study of Evaluation (CSE) Program Evaluation Kit, including planning, development, and/or revisions of specific components. The kit is a set of books, originally developed in 1978, and designed to provide step-by-step procedural guides to help people conduct evaluations of educational programs. To assure that the revision would accurately portray evaluation theory and state of the art practice, an advisory committee of five individuals was established. The committee met as an advisory board and agreed on the following changes to eight chapters: (1) Evaluation Handbook, provide orientation as to how the field has changed and emphasize on-going, internal improvement-oriented evaluation; (2) How to Deal with Goals and Objectives, change title and revise substantially; (3) How to Design a Program Evaluation, rewrite introduction; (4) How to Measure Program Implementation, add brief overview and expand discussion; (5) How to Measure Attitudes, essentially unchanged; (6) How to Measure Achievement; change title and expand discussion; (7) How to Calculate Statistics, essentially unchanged; and (8) How to Present an Evaluation Report, change title and expand. How to Conduct a Qualitative Study, a new addition to the kit, was recommended. Authors provided drafts, several of which are appended to this document. (LMO)
