Better Living Through Evaluation? Images of Progress Shaping Evaluation Practice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Essays, opinions, and professional judgments are welcome in this section of E.P. Forum articles speak to and about the philosophical and ethical dilemmas of our profession. Authors are invited to express their views to encourage constructive dialogue centered on issues. To keep the dialogue substantive, other articles motivated by previous Forum presentations should have independent titles and themes. Items labeled “Comments on…” and “Rejoinder to…” will not be published in Forum— such responses, and those not of article length or nature, are welcome and encouraged in the In Response section of E.P. Standard citations and reference lists should acknowledge and identify earlier contributions and view points. Manuscripts should not exceed 10 double-spaced typewritten pages in length.
