This chapter endorses the view that every action is a political act, political in the sense that there is continuing competition for status among the clients of an evaluation. It determines where politics finds expression in a student's learning environment. It discusses that the politics of evaluation represents more than a single and tokenistic topic and underpins every aspect of evaluation from commissioning, design, and delivery through to dissemination.

Keywords:   learning, evaluation, politics, learning environment, commissioning, design, dissemination
