2003 (English)In: Evaluation, ISSN 1356-3890, E-ISSN 1461-7153, Vol. 9, no 3, 340-352 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

While evaluation practice is still disposed towards rational quantitative methods, evaluation research has increasingly utilized qualitative dialogical methods. In this article, the increasing gap between practice and research is examined by analysing how evaluation research has evolved from within three perspectives: a policy programme perspective, a welfare economics perspective and a planning theory perspective. The article also discusses the implications of the emerging gap between evaluation research and practice.
