Il valutatore seriale e il pompiere-incendiario


By now even in Italy evaluation activities, in many sectors among which university, tend to prevail over evaluated activities. This phenomenon takes place in the context of university policies that evaluate so much but then fund very little. The phenomenon has a lot of negative aspects. For example, it produces a weakening of the constitutional freedom of research: university researchers are compelled not to follow their intuitions and vocations, because they need to conform more and more to heteronomous parameters. So university research is running the risk of becoming more and more standardized. Moreover the need of overproduction is more and more absorbing the time that university researchers should devote to reading and teaching.
