An Overview and Some Foundations

Part of the Evaluation in Education and Human Services book series (EEHS, volume 14)


One step in the evaluate-your-instruction process asks, “Which person, or explicitly definable group of people, is in charge of the learning event about to be evaluated?” The question addresses issues like content (who can decide what to present?), classroom organization (who decides if it will be individualized, small groups, whole group, lecture, or whatever?), teacher behavior, and expected student behavior. It seems like a reasonable question; to some, a question whose answer is so obvious it does not need asking.
