What is evaluation?
Evaluation describes how to assess the nature,
impact and value of an activity through the
systematic collection, analysis and
interpretation of information with a view to
making an informed decision
• Evaluation involves 3 activities:
o Outlining clear purposes
o Gathering evidences
o Judgment
• Evaluation is part of development rather
than apart from it.
Approaches to curriculum evaluation
• Goal-based
– Determining whether pre-stated goals of educational or training
programs were met.
• Goal-free
– Uncovering and documenting what outcomes were occurring in
educational or training programs without regard to whether they
were intended program goals focus.
• Responsive (contingency-unforeseen event)
– Comparing what was intended for instruction to what actually was
