Adding New Dimensions to Case Study Evaluations: The Case of Evaluating Comprehensive Reforms
Yin, Robert K.; Davis, Darnella
New Directions for Evaluation, n113 p75-93 Spr 2007
This chapter describes the adaptation of the case study method to assessing increasingly complex, comprehensive reform initiatives that highlight the blurring of the boundaries between phenomenon and context and the concurrence of multiple interventions. Completed studies of two education reform programs illustrate the ongoing challenges of identifying, measuring, and analyzing large-scale reforms at multiple levels and across sites. (Contains 2 figures, 1 table and 8 notes.)
