Cognitive Processes, Mores, and the Accumulation of Data: Program Evaluation and the Status Quo
Cochran, Nancy
Evaluation Quarterly, 2, 2, 343-58, May 78
Distortion and selective disclosure limit data that are available to program evaluators, producing a bias that tends to maintain the status quo. Paradoxically, attempts to objectify the data only increase the potential for distortion. Ironically, one way to encourage innovation may be to not measure it. Additional solutions are suggested.
