It is possible to identify some “operational objectives” or uses of educational evaluation, in addition to the general aims of educational evaluation. Check for Educational Evaluations in US at UT Evaluators
The following objectives are linked to the implementation and practice of educational evaluation and, to the uses of its outcomes at different moments of the process. The following list is certainly not exhaustive. Educational evaluation has a lot of potential and uses, but among others, the following:
1 To plan better
Educational evaluation can help to change things and to plan “different things”, but it can also help us to plan things better, in order to prevent negative consequences and to compensate for possible shortcomings.
2 To take stock of achievements
It is important to recognise, name and give value to the achievements of the educational process so that they do not get lost or not sufficiently used.
3 To consolidate results
Identified results can be consolidated by making them explicit at the end of the evaluation process. The description, sharing and further use of results are natural follow-up steps of educational evaluation.
4 To check if we met the interests of the funding institutions
When funding institutions support a certain educational project, they do it according to certain criteria: the nature of the project, its objectives, their priorities. Funding institutions usually ask to receive a descriptive and evaluative report at the end of the project. Even so, educational evaluation plans and criteria should not be limited to the expectations of the organisations that fund the project. But, it is important to consider and include them. Usually this is not a difficult exercise: in most cases the questions they would like to answer through evaluation would be part of our evaluation anyway. For Educational Evaluations in US visit here
5 To reinforce co-operation with partners
If partners are involved in the educational project, they will be involved in its evaluation. A constructive and participative evaluation will naturally reinforce co-operation.But, even if your partners are not directly involved, the results of the evaluation can be ofinterest to them. You might share new ideas for common projects, other fields of common interest and ways of co-operating, new partners and networks with them.
