Additional Information:The paper reviews the deliberations of the Sixth Cambridge Evaluation Conference (2004) for which Kushner was the Co-Convenor. The Cambridge Conferences - 4-5 day international invited seminars - commenced in 1972 and are widely cited as a source of methodological development in the field of programme and policy evaluation. The first such conference published a 'Manifesto for Educational Evaluation'. This last conference reassembled some original conferees with other leading evaluation theorists to review evaluation experience and changing political contexts in the intervening 30 years. The need for a restatement of principle and a repositioning of educational evaluation was resolved, and the conference (including extended post-conference communications) agreed a new Manifesto which was disseminated and verified at evaluation and educational research conferences internationally. Its rigour and originality derive from its source in the collective deliberations of a international group of prominent theorists. Kushner is responsible for 50% of this publication.
