Educational evaluation has changed considerably since Wolf's first edition. The value of his ideas has not. This third edition extends and refines the first. Wolf identifies basic questions addressed in studies and information needed to answer those questions. Throughout, he advocates an eclectic approach--combining qualitative and quantitative techniques. Wolf adds new material including a chapter on the contemporary scene. Text or handbook, this comprehensive volume covers the history of evaluation, planning and conducting studies, analysis of results, report preparation, and decision making.
