Abstract

The word evaluation is used loosely to encompass many different activities and purposes. When educators evaluate a reading program, they may be referring to deciding which of several reading programs their school district should adopt; when evaluating a school-bell schedule, they may mean finding out how popular the schedule is among students and faculty and what the advantages and disadvantages of several other bell schedules may be; when evaluating students, they may mean administering achievement or psychological tests; and so on.
