Alan L. Webb, Randall E. Schumacker, Amy Tilford

Vallin, Philippoff, Pierce, and Brandon (2015) initiated the practice of cataloguing and categorizing research on evaluation articles. They categorized and classified the most recent 14 years of journal articles published in the American Journal of Evaluation on the basis of the following criteria: place of authorship, research design, data collection method, and research topic. This quartet of scholars called for other researchers to follow their lead by categorizing and classifying research on evaluation studies published in other journals. In this article we have followed their suggestion by categorizing and classifying 176 research on evaluation articles which have been published in Studies in Educational Evaluation over the past six years. We discovered that authorship was distributed mainly between Europe (57%) and North America (23%). Single case (51%), multiple case (17%) and document reviews (17%) were the most popular method of data collection. Studies devoted to teacher performance (38%) and student performance (29%) were topics which received the most attention.
