In Praise of Uncertainty.
Cronbach, Lee J.
New Directions for Program Evaluation, (Standards for Evaluation Practice) n15 p49-58 Sep 1982
Standardization is inimical to innovation. Although the function of a standard is to standardize, the Evaluation Research Society (ERS) Standards avoid a standardizing effect. Their contribution lies mostly in the symbolism of their existence: to issue a set of standards is to proclaim maturity of thought for the field. (Author/LC)
