The primary thrust of the interest in educational evaluation which persists today began with the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. A study of journal citations was used to identify which of the early 1960s writings have continued to influence evaluation thought in education throughout the 1970s. Five classic articles were identified and reasons for their continued influence are suggested.
