Evaluating Federal Education Programs.
Baker, Eva L., Ed.
A series of papers was developed by the authors as part of their deliberations as members of the National Research Council's Committee of Program Evaluation in Education. The papers provide a broad range of present evaluative thinking. The conflict between preferences in evaluation methodology comes through in these papers. The selections include: An Overview of Evaluation Strategies and Procedures (Peter H. Rossi, Richard A. Berk); Uses and Users of Evaluation (Marvin C. Alkin); Who Controls Evaluation? The Interorganizational Complexities of Evaluation Research (Robert K. Yin); and, Evidential Problems in Social Program Evaluation and their Analogs from Engineering and the Physical Sciences, Medicine, and an Assortment of other Disciplines, Basic and Applied, Together with Selected Historical References (Robert F. Boruch). (Author/GK)
