Development of a Framework for Curriculum Evaluation in Tertiary Music Education

Janel G. Bauza

This study highlights the development of a curriculum framework using the Delphi method in response to an emerging caveat in the academe for a relevant curriculum framework.

Based on the Delphi method, three rounds of data gathering through interview and questionnaire were conducted. Data were analyzed using measures of central tendency and variability. The results show that there is consensus among the panel of experts in round two in that they agree with the elements of the framework that were generated from the responses. In round three, consensus was not achieved because there is a divergence of views about the order of importance of the said elements. The results notwithstanding, the study has demonstrated the effectiveness of the Delphi in bringing about the elements of a framework that is, compared to other frameworks, particular and suitable for the distinct nature of music as a discipline in the tertiary level.
