Goal-Free Evaluation: Philosophical and Ethical Aspects of Michael Scriven's Model.
Irvine, Jane F.
CEDR Quarterly, v12 n3 p11-14 Fall 1979
Scriven advocates a philosophical shift from the pseudoscientific doctrine of the traditional social sciences. He substitutes a key evaluation checklist--encompassing needs assessment, comparative value, and assessment of overall value; and suggests that evaluators use this checklist. Theoretically, the grounding of evaluation in judging and valuing must be recognized. (CP)
