Traditional Research versus Evaluation.
Benedict, Larry G.
Research paradigms are not the proper channel for educational evaluation. Evaluation and research differ in many areas, including purpose, methods, goals, groups, and desired outcomes. Research is strictly controlled, has the purpose of gathering information and making generalizations about completed studies or events. Evaluation is a process asking for feedback from groups as they exist, not under controlled conditions. Evaluation seeks specifics that show what is happening in an event while research explains causes. (SM)
