Qualitative Control: A Review of the Framework for Assessing Qualitative Evaluation
This article takes a balanced look at the recent publication Quality in Qualitative Evaluation: a Framework for Assessing Research Evidence (Liz Spencer, Jane Ritchie, Jane Lewis and Lucy Dillon), published by the UK Cabinet Office. Set in a context of an absence in the UK of a defined professional community of evaluators - unlike in the USA - the article examines the promises and limitations of the Framework. The Framework emerges as a useful document for legitimating the use of more varied and comprehensive data sets, but shows certain weaknesses in acknowledging the particular challenge of evaluation practice, as opposed to the mere application of social science methods. © 2005, Sage Publications.
