Worm's eye view of "Culture of Evidence"

Posted By: Dick Schutz on October 19, 2015
 
Culture building is as dubious and wishful as nation building and capacity building. The article provides no evidence that either of colleges is a "culture of evidence" that generalizes beyond the activity surrounding the Performance Assessment for California Teachers (PACT). No evidence is presented that the selection of the PACT as a means of complying with state legislative mandates.

What we have here are two case studies reported at a very high level of abstraction. Nothing wrong with that. But if this is evidence for a culture of evidence, how you get one, and whether you should want one, I say the hell with it--or scholarly words to that effect, or smiley emoticon added.
