Abstract:

Why do we have evaluation? Is evaluation a discipline? How much impact does evaluation have on government, education, or politics? Can social problems, such as poverty, be solved like engineering problems by the application of resources and intelligence? By exploring how evaluation has evolved as a discipline, science, and profession, House examines how evaluation impacts modern societies and the issues that this impact (social force) raises for evaluators. Addressing such issues as pluralism versus managerialism, quantitative versus qualitative methodologies, the purpose of higher education for knowledge production versus educating people for professions, clientism, and multicultural concerns, House traces how evaluation has evolved as a basis for determining where the field should go - and, how.
