Introduction to EPE

EPE is:

  • An entire proess of data-gathering for evaluating an education program
  • Results in a report of whether the program should be revised, continued as-is, or terminated
  • This result is described and elaborated to a decision maker
  • Whether the decision maker would apply or reject the findings is not the authority of the evaluation performer
