Beginning an evaluation with RUFDATA: theorising a practical approach to evaluation planning In Evaluation Volume 6, no 1 pp7-21 Murray Saunders Introduction This paper is derived from two sources. The first source is a framework used with colleagues in CSET [Centre for the Study of Education and Training] at the University of Lancaster, UK to undertake(More)
" Using evaluation to create 'provisional stabilities': bridging innovation in Higher Education change processes " , Abstract This paper will report on the evaluation experience in two SOCRATES (European Union funding mechanism designed to support innovation in teaching and learning) projects focused on change in Higher Education. The projects were(More)
This article draws on research into evaluation and on the tacit practices used in an evaluation agency to develop an approach to initiating new evaluators into evaluation planning processes. Using these two sources as a base, this article suggests that it is possible to conceptualize evaluation as a series of knowledge-based practices. These knowledge-based(More)
This report complements another paper by the same authors, \A numerical comparison between the LANCELOT and MINOS packages for large-scale nonlinear opti-mization". It presents the complete numerical results on which the discussion of the MINOS/LANCELOT comparison is based. It is intended mostly for reference. One set of tables lists the dimensions of 913(More)
Image priors based on products have been recognized to offer many advantages because they allow simultaneous enforcement of multiple constraints. However, they are inconvenient for Bayesian inference because it is hard to find their normalization constant in closed form. In this paper, a new Bayesian algorithm is proposed for the image restoration problem(More)
