The World's New Political Economy Is Politicizing Educational Evaluation.
Guthrie, James W.
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, v13 n3 p309-21 Fall 1991

Means of restoring an equilibrium between conventional evaluation norms/procedures and evolving expectations of the political system through a new institutional evaluation perspective are suggested.
