Evaluator Credibility as a Function of Report Style: Do Jargon and Data Make a Difference?
Brown, Robert D.; And Others
Evaluation Quarterly, 2, 2, 331-41, May 78
This study examined the impact of different simulated evaluation report styles (use of jargon and data) on educators' agreement with evaluator's recommendations, and on ratings of the evaluator and the report. The jargon-loaded, data-free report was rated most difficult and most technical, with an audience of teachers and administrators. (Author/CTM)
