Summary

The costs incurred by state education agencies (SEA's) for evaluation activities are looked at in this study, which also examines the possible role that the use of management consulting might play in reducing these costs. It is estimated that SEA evaluation activities in the U.S. today cost about $32 million and that the use of management consulting offers potential savings of about $2.9 million. The study compares management consulting, technical consulting, evaluation, and research activities and explains how each is different. Although management consulting and evaluation activities may overlap, one distinct difference is that management consulting is client centered regarding decision-making whereas evaluation activities emphasize a critical record of program activities or outcomes. The study concludes with a number of recommendations for further research, including a refinement and confirmation of the figures presented here, and studies to show how actual savings might be achieved in practice.
