About this book

"James Altschuld, David Kumar, and their chapter authors have produced an upbeat, provocative, visionary, and useful volume on educational evaluation. Of special utility is its grounding in issues and practices relating to evaluations of science and technology education. The book should appeal and be useful to a wide range of persons involved in evaluations of educational policy, programs, and (less so) science teachers. These persons include science and technology education experts, educational policymakers, officials of the National Science Foundation, school administrators, classroom teachers, evaluation instructors, evaluation methodologists, practicing evaluators, and test developers, among others. Contents reflecting international studies of curriculum, evaluation of distance education, and evaluation of technology utilization in Australian schools, as well as evaluations in America should make the book appealing to an international audience. Moreover, it provides a global perspective for assessing and strengthening educational evaluation in the US."
Daniel L. Stufflebeam, Professor of Education and Director of the Evaluation Center, Western Michigan University

"The reader is led on a path of discovery and inquiry into the world of educational evaluation by a wide array of experts in the field. The book is meant for persons involved in science and technology education, educational policy and reform institutes, the National Science Foundation, school administration, classroom teaching, evaluation instruction at the university level, evaluation methodology and practice, and the development of standardized and authentic assessment. … is a valuable resource to the literature of educational evaluation."
