Evaluation in the Social Studies: A Critical Review of the Literature.
Tate, Sean Alan
This paper looks at curriculum evaluation as it operates today and proceeds to examine evaluation in the social studies as viewed by some of the well-known authors in the field. This is followed by a review of evaluation used by some of the various social studies curriculum projects and presents a number of findings. The paper, according to the author, could be seen as a kind of informal "meta-evaluation" i.e., the evaluation of evaluation. The paper concludes that a formal meta-evaluation of social studies curriculum projects is needed if the field is to catch up to other disciplines and become more cohesive and worthwhile. Two appendices are given: the first contains a listing of curriculum development projects in social studies, while the second contains some definitions of the term "evaluation". A seven page bibliography is also found at the end of the paper. (FDI)
