The Role of Evaluation in Programs for Individualized Instruction


by C. M. Lindvall & Richard C. Cox 1969

Preceding chapters have discussed the role of evaluation with respect to a variety of aspects of the educational program. From this discussion it is quite obvious that educational evaluation takes many forms and serves a great number of functions. Evaluation can mean the assessment of pupil achievement and the use of such information for making decisions about students or for making decisions about the quality of instruction. It may also refer to the gathering of many types of pupil data, of which achievement measures would be only one part, for the purpose of planning learning activities suited to the individual. The term "evaluation" has also been used to describe the study of teacher performance for the purpose Of improving it and to indicate the assessment of an entire curriculum for the purpose of making decisions concerning its worth. Because of the many uses of the term it may be clarifying to specify how it will be used in the present chapter.
