Description

This edited volume seeks to address some of the questions regarding the role of culture and cultural context in evaluative theory and process, including:

  • Should evaluation be culturally responsive?
  • Is the field heading in the right direction in its attempt to become more culturally responsive?
  • What is culturally responsive evaluation today and what might it look like in the future?

The book explores what culturally relevant evaluation looks like through reflections of evaluation theory, history, and practice within the context of culture with illustrative examples.

WestEd’s Sharon Nelson-Barber and Sofia Aburto, and Elise Trumbull, contributed to a key chapter, “Promoting Culturally Reliable and Valid Evaluation Practice in Education.”
