Annotation: MATHEMATICAL REFINEMENT AND EXTENTION OF A MODEL FOR PREDICTING THE PROBABLE UTILIZATION OF AN EVALUATION BOTH PRIOR TO AND AFTER ITS COMPLETION.
Abstract: THE AUTHOR ADJUSTS THE 'LIAR' (LINKED INDICES FOR ASSESSING RELEVANCE) MODEL SO THAT ITS VALUE, THE PROBABILITY OF AN EVALUATIONS USE, CAN NEVER EXCEED ONE. SECONDLY, HE EXTENDS THE MODEL SO THAT IT CAN MEASURE AND SCORE AN ADMINISTRATOR'S UTILIZATION OF EVALUATION AND RESEARCH IN THE PERFORMANCE OF HIS DUTIES. THIS MEASURE IS APPLICABLE TO TIME SPANS OF ONE YEAR OR MORE. THE ARGUMENT IS PRESENTED THAT THIS VALUABLE SCORE COULD EVEN BE CONSIDERED FOR MERIT RAISES, ETC.
Index Term(s): Evaluation; Evaluation techniques; Mathematical modeling; Modeling techniques
