Summative Evaluation, Formative Evaluation, and Tactical Research.
Reichardt, Charles S.
Evaluation Practice, v15 n3 p275-81 Oct 1994
Unless more resources are devoted to the development of social programs, summative evaluation will increasingly become a waste of time. Formative evaluation and tactical research will become more important to the extent that they actively assist in creation of social programs, increasing challenges to the integrity and validity of their work.
