Abstract

This paper describes a particular strategy and method of field testing or evaluation: administrative experimentation. The method is first defined in terms of its relation to other methods, and its potential strengths and limitations. Second, the method itself is described in some detail. Finally, case studies of its use are presented to provide a basis for evaluating the usefulness of the method.
