Objectives-Oriented Evaluation: The Tylerian Tradition
- 178 Downloads
Ralph W. Tyler developed the first systematic approach to educational eval uation. This evolved from his work in the 1930s and early 1940s on the Eight-Year Study at Ohio State University (Smith and Tyler, 1942). Since that time, Professor Tyler has continued to develop aspects of evaluation, particularly at the national level following the growth of federally funded programs in education. The extent of the esteem in which he is held can be gauged, in part, by the large number of highly reputable evaluators who have based their methodology on the Tylerian approach.
