Formative and Summative Evaluation: Related Issues in Performance Measurement.
Wholey, Joseph S.
Evaluation Practice, v17 n2 p145-49 Spr-Sum 1996
Performance measurement can serve both formative and summative evaluation functions. Formative evaluation is typically more useful for government purposes whereas performance measurement is more useful than one-shot evaluations of either formative or summative nature. Evaluators should study performance measurement through case studies and cross-case analysis. (SLD)
