On Evaluation Policy in the United States and Israel. Report No. A-112.
Northwestern Univ., Evanston, IL. Dept. of Psychology.
This paper has two aims, each bearing on recent developments in evaluation policy. The first is to summarize a report presented in 1980 to the United States Congress and Department of Education, concerning evaluation policy and practices at the national, state, and local levels of government. The second aim is to link some of the United States recommendations to ideas presented at the Israel-United States seminar on education evaluation, and in related papers by the seminar participants. The intent is (1) to outline similarities, differences, and analogs between the two perspectives in order to learn how the Israeli experience can be adapted by the United States, and vice versa; and (2) to examine how the problems evidenced in the arena of evaluation are not confined by national borders, ethnic origin, or history.
