Abstract

The paper discusses the evaluation of two community-based intervention projects that were evaluated using a methodology that appears to differ strongly from traditional quasi-experimental designs. The main reason for this deviation is that traditional designs do not match the way community projects develop over time. Moreover, these designs do not provide enough information to improve these intervention projects in the future. It is argued that traditional designs can be partially tailored, but not sufficiently to address these needs. The evaluation methods that were actually used, also have drawbacks. It is argued that both the traditional and the here described evaluation methods do not provide enough information about what communities offer to children. Moreover, they do not account sufficiently for the democratic dynamics of community-based projects. A different direction is proposed, suggesting that not projects and interventions should be evaluated, but the children’s experience of (change of the) quality of the entire network of people and organizations in their community.

  • Het tijdschrift Pedagogiek stelt zich ten doel de wetenschappelijke discussie over opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming binnen het Nederlands taalgebied (Nederland en Vlaanderen) te stimuleren en te ondersteunen. Pedagogiek beoogt naast een bijdrage aan het wetenschappelijke debat ook de maatschappelijke discussie op de terreinen van opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming te bevorderen. Bijdragen zullen dan ook uitdrukkelijk worden beoordeeld op zowel hun wetenschappelijke als maatschappelijke relevantie. Pedagogiek biedt: (1) wetenschappelijke verslagen van empirisch, theoretisch en historisch onderzoek op het gebied van opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming, alsmede review studies op onderhavige terreinen; (2) opiniërende bijdragen van wetenschappelijk niveau (Forumbijdragen); (3) boekbesprekingen.

    The journal Pedagogiek (Pedagogy) aims to stimulate and support the scholarly discourse on child rearing, education and training within the Dutch language area (The Netherlands and the Flemish region). Pedagogiek strives to contribute to the scholarly debate, but also desires to boost the public debate on the subject of child rearing, education and training. Therefore, contributions will be judged explicitly on both their scholarly merit and their social relevance. Pedagogiek offers: (1) scholarly articles reporting on empirical, theoretical and historical research in the field of child rearing, education and training, and review studies in the same field; (2) opinion pieces on a scholarly level (panel discussions); (3) book reviews.
