The Relationships Between Policy and Evaluation in State Departments of Education. Research on Evaluation Program Paper and Report Series.
Caulley, Darrel N., Ed.
What are the relationships between policy and evaluation within state departments of education? How does policy influence what is evaluated in such settings and how does evaluation inform policymaking? Directors of evaluation in six state education agencies address these issues through detailed descriptions of their operations: Gordon Ascher, Oregon; Gerald Bracey, Virginia; David L. Donovan, and Stanley A. Rumbaugh, Michigan; James H. Gold, Wisconsin; Alfred Rasp, Jr., Washington; and Paul D. Sandifer, South Carolina. An educational philosopher specializing in policy analysis, Thomas F. Green, then provides a commentary on the preceding six papers. (Author/BW)
