  • A recent accountability trend in educational evaluation focusing on whether students have met intended outcomes, including those knowledge, skills, and attitudes the students should demonstrate after completion of an educational program. Data are systematically collected in the form of carefully selected indicators to show the impact that a program has had on student attainment of the outcomes. Experimental designs allowing firm conclusions of cause and effect, however, are rarely used. Interpretations of the standar dized test data are usually made summatively, to claim whether or not the program has met the intended outcomes. Formative evaluation, focusing on how to improve programs in need of improvement, is often deemphasized in this movement.
