Content-Responsive Program Evaluation: An Integrated Preservice Example.
Costner, Kelly M.; Wagner, Sigrid; Owens, Douglas T.
This paper discusses the lack of and the need for program evaluation models for mathematics education and points out generic approaches to program evaluation. This project attempts to develop a mathematical approach to program evaluation that can be applied to an integrated preservice program for mathematics, science, and technology education teachers. Guiding questions for the overall project include: (1) How can program evaluators approach their task in a way that is valid for mathematics specialists; specifically, how can program evaluation be approached in a way that reflects the values of the mathematics education community? and (2) What is the role of the evaluator in content-responsive program evaluation?
