A Value-Engaged Approach for Evaluating the Bunche-Da Vinci Learning Academy
Greene, Jennifer C.
New Directions for Evaluation, n106 p27-45 Sum 2005
In 2001, the Bunche Academy was chosen by its district to join in partnership with the Da Vinci Learning Corporation to embark on an ambitious whole-school reform initiative, especially designed by the corporation for low-performing schools. In this chapter, the author describes how, as illustrated in the Bunche-Da Vinci Learning Academy context, she used a value-engaged approach to evaluation to emphasize responsiveness to the particularities of the context, inclusion of and engagement with multiple stakeholder perspectives and experiences, and attention to the social and relational dimensions of evaluation practice. (Contains 3 tables.)
