Comments on Professor Lortie's Paper Entitled "The Cracked Cake of Educational Custom and Emerging Issues in Evaluation." Center for the Study of Evaluation of Instructional Programs Occasional Report No. 20.
Gordon, C. Wayne
This paper suggests that the variety of decision making proposed by Professor Lortie will not afford the luxury of evaluative systems of the kind he describes. Professor Gordon feels that, had Professor Lortie pursued a line of functional analysis of many outcomes, he would have arrived at an entirely new analysis of the justification for complexity of evaluation.
