Remembering and Celebrating a Realistic Evaluation Visionary
Patton, Michael Quinn
American Journal of Evaluation, v34 n3 p439-441 Sep 2013
In this article, Michael Quinn Patton pays tribute to Carol Hirschon Weiss, a woman who brought passion to evaluation use. She also brought attention to it, publishing the first article on evaluation in 1967. Weiss' many contributions have come into evaluation currency and overtaken formerly taken-for-granted assumptions. Indeed, her insights that were groundbreaking and controversial at the time are now deeply enmeshed in evaluation thought and practice. Herein, Patton provides a top 10 countdown of Weiss' enduring contributions.
