Identify the program goals and essential question
What are the three key ideas or messages that I
want all participants to know when they complete
the program? What overarching question or

Identify the program goals and essential question
  • The PARK program goals focused on pre-service
    teachers being able to
  • Improve their geology content knowledge,
  • Engage in quality instructional practices,
  • Experience national park as a research education
    site,
  • Learn about educational resources in national
    parks,
  • Transfer their knowledge to their local
    community.
  • The essential question was, How do you recognize
    evidence of geologic change in your environment?

Create an evaluation matrix based on program goals
  • An evaluation matrix is an outline of the
    evaluation plan.
  • The matrix includes the
  • Program Outcomes,
  • Task to achieve the outcomes, and
  • Assessment strategies to measure the outcomes.
  • Lets look at some specific examples from the
    PARK program on the next two slides.

outcome. B Identify how you plan to measure or
evaluate if you have achieved the outcome.
Part 2 Present your evaluation matrix to the
whole group.

Select the Appropriate Assessment Strategies
  • It is imperative that you select the appropriate
    assessment strategy when developing your
    evaluation plan.
  • The type of assessment used must match the
  • program outcomes and
  • type of knowledge being evaluated.

Assessing Different Types of Knowledge

Pilot and Revise Assessment Instruments
Piloting and Revising the Assessment Instruments
is Essential! The revision process helps you
to clarify what you are trying to assess,
make revisions to other program components
(content, instructional activities, or course
