Evaluation as a Main Aim of Science: Comments on Professor Bloom's Paper Entitled "Toward a Theory of Testing Which Includes Measurement-Evaluation-Assessment."
Both measurement and testing are regarded as component methodologies contributing to the legitimate and more comprehensive scientific activity of evaluation. This perspective is broader than that offered by Bloom and incorporates the need for the educational evaluator not only to apply specific criteria and methods for evaluation but also to exercise value judgments determining their appropriateness.
