Evaluation Processes in Schools and Classrooms. Report No. 12. May, 1987.
Literature relating to evaluation processes in schools and classrooms is reviewed to develop a conceptual framework for integrating research on such evaluation processes. This report was prepared by the Middle School program. Commentary and research on elements of the evaluation process are examined in this framework, and the ways in which formal programs and policies have impact on evaluation are considered. The framework here presented is summarized as: (1) establishing evaluation purposes; (2) assigning tasks to students; (3) setting student performance criteria; (4) setting performance standards; (5) sampling information on student performance; (6) assessing student performance; (7) providing feedback to students; and (8) monitoring outcomes of evaluation. This framework is a first step toward the comprehensive framework needed for effective evaluation. A 13-page list of references and four tables are presented. (SLD)
