What Do We Mean by Evaluation?
Newburn, Tim
Children & Society, v15 n1 p5-13 Jan 2001
Discusses the history of evaluation research, focusing on current emphasis on "evidence-based policy." Highlights five issues emerging as relevant: evaluation can be done in many ways, serious doubts exist about the usefulness of the term "evaluation," evaluation is held back by paradigm wars, views of evaluation are excessively value-laden, and policymakers are often unsure of the meaning of evaluation.
