Curriculum Evaluation: Toward a Systematic Methodology.
Hamdan, Mohamed Zaid
A systematic methodology is proposed for the evaluation of curriculum. Four domains are identified, including the evaluation of: (1) curriculum planning; (2) curriculum development; (3) curriculum implementation; and (4) curriculum effects. Evaluating curriculum planning must include determining the legality of the curriculum and must consider the personal experiences of teachers in assessing educational needs. In evaluating development, the validity of curriculum products must be checked against internal criteria for appropriateness and consequence. Evaluation of implementation includes consideration of human, educational, physical, and social factors. Both primary and side effects must be evaluated in studying curriculum effects. As a tool by which society advances its goals, a curriculum merits systematic integrated evaluation. Eight figures represent relationships among various aspects of curriculum evaluation. (SLD)
