Summary

A ninth grade home economics course, taught in an Australian high school, was evaluated with the goals of providing staff with information on evaluation procedures and obtaining information upon which judgments and recommendations for change about a particular course could be made. Of key importance in this project was the presence of an outside Research Officer with evaluation expertise, who was invited by the staff to assist in the evaluation. This "outsider" acted as advisor, coordinator, contact between the school and external resources, collector of information, and "critical friend" to the teachers whose courses were being evaluated. This report represents the Research Officer's synthesis of perceptions of the project, and attempts to identify the characteristics of the role as "outsider" that were seen by participants as meeting their needs. Suggestions are made for improving the evaluation process in schools, and for developing the role of the outside assistant. An outline is given of the teacher questionnaires used in the project and the interview and observation schedules. (JD)
