Secondary Evaluations.
Cook, Thomas D.
Secondary evaluations, in which an investigator takes a body of evaluation data collected by a primary evaluation researcher and examines the data to see if the original conclusions about the program correspond with his own, are discussed. The different kinds of secondary evaluations and the advantages and disadvantages of each are pointed out, and the particular advantage of one kind of secondary evaluation which is likely to be relatively comprehensive in scope is discussed. What secondary evaluations can and cannot accomplish is noted, and some specific steps that could be taken to increase the frequency and quality of secondary evaluations in the future are outlined.
