Abstract: 

The purpose of this research was to study the amount of observance of the intended principles of evaluation in Thought and Research (TAR) Course curriculum at primary school sixth grade. It was an applied research with survey and analytical-descriptive design. The research population of the questionnaire section included instructors, experts and teachers in Isfahan and Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari provinces. Due to the shortage of instructors (40), all of them were selected as research sample. To select the teachers and experts, random stratified sampling method was used and 286 teachers and experts were chosen as research sample. In observational section of the study, 95 classes were observed and 180 instructors, experts and teachers were purposefully interviewed using a semi-structured method. The data was collected using questionnaire, interview, and observation. Both content and construct validity of the research instruments were checked. Reliability of questionnaire was checked using Cronbach’s alpha, reliability of observer was checked using observer reliability relating to criteria, and the reliability of the interview was checked using the transcription of interviewee speech. Findings showed that based on the viewpoint of teachers and experts, the intended principles related to evaluation of Thought and Research (TAR) Course curriculum at primary school sixth grade were applied at moderate level (`X=3.34), and from the viewpoint of observers it was applied at a low level (`X=2.58). Results show that attention to intended evaluating scientific principles like using purpose-oriented, cooperative, and collective evaluation has been moderatly observed instead of goal-oriented evaluation.
