Toward a Methodology of Naturalistic Inquiry in Educational Evaluation

Dec 1978

Egon G. Guba

The CSE Monograph Series in Evaluation covers a broad spectrum of evaluation activities and issues–theoretical and practical–comprising evaluation, by presenting the work of experts in the field who represent a wide range of educational philosophies and who subscribe to a variety of evaluation frameworks and models. In this volume, Dr. Guba addresses the methodologies available to evaluators and makes the case for naturalistic inquiry as distinguished from experimental inquiry.
