What Philosophic Questions for Educational Evaluators.
Briggs, Richard G.
The meanings of "evaluation" and "decisioning" are examined and the function, form, and content of educational evaluation are set forth. Philosophical questions which emerge from epistemology, logic, axiology, ethics, social philosophy, ontology, and metaphysics concerning the nature of people are briefly described. In order to address questions in any given area of philosophy, assumptions must be made about other areas. Persons-in-practice make assumptions which differ from those of other persons-in-practice. It is useful for educational evaluators to be able to sort through differing assumptions in order to develop clear descriptions. (Author/RC)
