Evaluating with validity
`The current evaluation scene is marked by vitality and disorder', according to Ernest House. This book brings order to the field by examining its foundations, and criticising eight basic models, including systems analysis, the behavioural objectives approach, and the case study. House then argues for the standards of validity which he feels are necessary.
