Summary

This paper discusses how an experimental design can be applied to a large-scale evaluation. The purpose of the study described is to assess the success of the National Science Foundation (NSF) in achieving its goal for five comprehensive projects. This paper is divided into four main sections: (1) design; (2) sampling procedures; (3) data gathering techniques; and (4) conclusion. The majority of the paper is given to a description of the sampling and data gathering techniques used. Throughout, an emphasis is placed on procedures used and decisions made together with the reasoning behind the decisions made. Actions taken which reduced the experimental design power and advantages of using the design are discussed. It is concluded that the experimental design deserves to be considered in the evaluator's tools to be used in improving both the decision-making process and the resulting decisions. (Author/HM)
