Program Evaluation and Outcome Assessment Documenting the Worth of Educational Programs.
Erford, Bradley T.; Moore-Thomas, Cheryl
National concerns regarding quality education make program evaluation and outcomes assessment more important than ever. Traditionally, however, educators have failed to hold their programs and services accountable, or to provide evidence that selected activities were achieving intended results. The purpose of this chapter is to give educators the basic tools needed to design and conduct individualized, effective outcomes assessment and program evaluation that will aim to document and determine the worth of specific educational programs.
