Abstract:

A variety of different functions are performed by policy analysts. Among these are program evaluation, planning, implementation, administration or coordination along with the more informal functions of liaison and advising. Many different kinds of people fulfill these functions, but there is no known similarity between the differences among the functions and the differences among analysts. Since these differences are not amenable to study, examination of the characteristics that schools that are training policy analysts are trying to impart to their students seems a suitable substitute.
