Possibilities and Limits of Evaluation Research in Educational Planning. IIEP Seminar Paper: 11.
The evaluation of the qualitative aspects of education is not as simple a task as the evaluation of quantitative aspects. The research frequently fails to offer the educational planner concrete guidance in the area of educational quality. The planner must work in a framework of conflicting criteria requiring political decisions, with limited resources, and within a set pattern of rules and policies that cannot be changed rapidly. Many factors are simply out of the scope of the planner's influence. The problems with educational planning are exacerbated in developing countries, and the difficulty with implementing educational innovations increases in these countries. (Author/DS)
