Middle school evaluations provide a case in point when the influence of political and organizational contextual conditions on evaluations is considered. This is illustrated by means of a description of the experiences with the middle school evaluation in the Netherlands and a brief sketch of the context of similar evaluations in Western Germany, England, Wales, France and Sweden. Several conclusions about favourable and unfavourable contextual conditions are drawn and some conditions concerning the future of middle school evaluations are discussed.
