It was prepared by a unit of the American Library Association, the Library Instruction Round Table Research Committee, whose members analyzed hundreds of evaluation forms gathered from all types of libraries, selecting the most consistently useful items. User-instruction programs are costly, and their effectiveness must be documented with hard data. But with busy staff, evaluation has often been more preached than practiced. One problem has been finding the expertise to create a valid measuring instrument that will provide effective results in a reasonable amount of time."@en ;

    schema:description "Under the editorship of its chair, Diana Shonrock, the Research Committee has addressed these problems with a "recipe" book that simplifies the planning and creation of evaluation instruments. Here, in one expertly assembled guide, you will find step-by-step advice on survey planning and well over 500 sample questions for evaluation of class work, instructors, and instructional materials and equipment. No other guide offers this level of "plug-and-play" assistance to get your evaluation program under way or is more up-to-date in its coverage of the electronic aspects of modern library instruction."@en ;
