Restoring the Relationship of "E-valuation" and Curriculum

  • Nancy J. Brooks


Social forces since the mid-20th century have led to the divorce of the scholarly fields of evaluation and curriculum and have reduced the former to a focus on the technical practice of assessment for accountability purposes. This reading of particular developments within the two fields traces the development of the split but suggests there are compatible frameworks and heuristics within the currently estranged areas that might work in synergy to reinvigorate both of them.
