Abstract

Thanks to 31 case studies of public universities, the partnership EVALUE has answered the three questions posed from the beginning and which deal with performance. 1. Under some conditions, it is obvious that the evaluation improves the university performance. 2. Because each university is, at the same time, a public institution and administration, a set of professional bodies, a firm of knowledge production and diffusion, and because each university has a specific history, the pluralist, context-sensitive, dynamic evaluation model is the most pertinent when the university wants to improve its performance. 3. Evaluation dealing with the education-employment relationship is not very structured: the question is more and more situated in all the relationships tied by universities with their economic, political, cultural and social environment.
