Abstract: The purpose of this research was to assess the Asheville Doctoral Program in Educational Administration with results used to improve the program. Context evaluation identified strengths and weaknesses in the program. Results provide a logical basis for adjustment of goals and priorities that need to be changed. Naturalistic inquiry employing a responsive approach resulted in a field-based case study. The researcher was a participant-observer. All doctoral students participating in the program during the period of the study (approximately twenty-four months) were invited to submit vignettes expressing their feelings about the program. Ten students participated in in-depth taped interviews. Information was solicited from University administrators, faculty members, area school superintendents and state legislators.
