Theory Used in Ethnographic Educational Evaluations: Negotiating Values.
Hyde, Arthur A.
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v18 n3 p131-48 Sep 1987
Analyzes nine ethnographic educational evaluation studies and shows how the theories chosen resulted from a negotiation of values among three participant groups: evaluators, funders, and practitioners. The studies reveal that the funder-evaluator relationship can become explosive when value differences are pronounced. Therefore, the evaluator should negotiate value differences early in the conception and design of the study. (KH)
