Four Generations of Evaluation and Home Schooling: A Position Paper

Oz Guterman, Ari Neuman, Efrat Gill

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This position paper examines the relationship of four generations of evaluation, the CIPP evaluation model, and summative and formative evaluation, and uses these terms to describe the characteristics of homeschooling. The article proposes that according to the four generations of evaluation and the CIPP model (context, input, process, and product), homeschooling can be divided into four generations. Such a division can help in examining the degree of fit of educational objectives and teaching methods with the method for evaluating homeschooling, as well as comparing homeschooling and school education based on how they use evaluation.
