The author provides educators with a process schools can use to systematically investigate programmes and initiatives to determine their value. She emphasizes analysis and synthesis of information (rather than data collection) and places the inquiry process in the hands of teachers rather than outsiders. The author uses examples drawn from her 20 years of experiences as a school evaluator and builds on current theories about evaluation, systemic change, and how people learn.
