Abstract

As a consequence of changes in the steering of the public sector in Norway during the 1990s, evaluation has, as in other European countries, become a standard element in the governing of the sector. However, evaluation procedures also seem to be an important instrument in the implementation of public sector reforms in this country. Provides an “inside” report on how evaluation may function in this respect. By analysing the role evaluation played in the implementation of an educational reform in Norway, discusses to what extent this way of organising implementation processes represent a change in public sector steering.
