Summary

This study introduces the theoretical notion of narrative based evaluation, its conceptual framework, its potential impact on assessment, and its place in educational discourse. Central to the author’s philosophy is the belief that writing and sharing our storied lives has a transformational effect on people – a phenomenon that promotes personal healing and understanding. Narrative Based Evaluation includes the case studies of three individuals who believe there is great power and promise in storytelling as a way of coming to know ourselves and others.
