Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1976 
59 p. 

A comprehensive conceptual framework for the validation of educational programs has been proposed. The conceptual framework includes the concept of an educational program as a system of curricular and instructional claims and methods of evaluation which entail a wide range of judgments of both logical validity and factual validity. Judgments of logical validity are made in reference to the internal structure of each of the claims and its various components, the relationships among the claims constituting a program, and the relationships between the component claims of a program and the bases of the profession under which the program is formulated and operates. The logic of reaching judgments of factual validity of the individual curricular and instructional claims, and of the program as a whole, has been described. Judgments of factual validity of the various component claims, and of the program, are made on the basis of observations of pupil performance and teacher action to determine whether those behaviors correspond to that which is entailed by fulfillment of the goal, rule, and qualifier components of the claims.
