The Road to Evaluation Capacity Building: A Case Study from Israel

Authors :

We present an empirical case study of an Evaluation Capacity Building (ECB) initiative in a school in Israel. First, we tell the story of the school's 10-year journey toward the successful integration of evaluation through ECB. Then we examine the case according to King's (2002) four elements of ECB: teachers, students, the curriculum, and the context. We present four concrete examples of evaluations conducted at the school illustrating how these elements influenced the results of ECB. We follow this presentation with a discussion of the case in relation to other ECB checklists. After thorough and systematic investigation, we believe that through this case we can learn more about the factors that contribute to or inhibit the successful outcome of an ECB effort in schools.
