This model was created by Daniel L. Stufflebeam, a professor at Western Michigan University. CIPP is an acronym that stands for context, inputs, processes, and products. Context evaluations help prioritize goals, input evaluations assess different approaches, process evaluations assess the implementation of plans, and product evaluations assess the outcomes (both intended and not intended). This model is used to evaluate both formative and summative assignments. The CIPP model advocates that "the purpose is not to prove, but to improve."

"Example values—applied
in evaluations of U.S. public school programs—are success in helping all students meet a state’s
mandated academic standards, helping all children develop basic academic skills, helping each
child fulfill her or his potential for educational development, assisting and reinforcing
development of students’ special gifts and talents, upholding human rights, meeting the needs of
disabled and underprivileged children, developing students as good citizens, assuring equality of
opportunity, effectively engaging parents in the healthy development of their children, attaining
excellence in all aspects of schooling, conserving and using resources efficiently, assuring safety
of educational products and procedures, maintaining separation of church and state, employing
research and innovation to strengthen teaching and learning, and maintaining accountability."

  • Which curriculum does the model evaluate: Planned, Enacted, and / or Experienced?

This model evaluates planned, enacted, and experienced curriculum. It has a very logical, lengthy, and organized framework.
  • How is data collected? What data is collected? Is there an organizer?

The data is collected by a specific evaluator or an evaluator team. There is a specific organizer, who utilizes a specific measurement tool (predetermined before the start of the task).
  • Where does student assessment fit in?

The student should meet with the evaluator to identify and clarify all of the values that are going to be assessed and how they are going to be assessed.
  • What are the Pros and Cons to the Evaluation model?

Pros: very organized framework (look at the first link), evaluates a variety of things, focuses on decision making
Cons: objectivist (no "wiggle room"), based on a top-down approach
