Evaluation & Review

The key feature that sets evaluation and evaluative review apart from descriptive research or audit, or monitoring, is that evaluation requires us to ask evaluative questions about how good something is, and whether it is good enough.

Deciding on what basis we determine how good something is, is the crux of the evaluation endeavour. One of the most important parts of our job as evaluators is to ensure there is a transparent basis for the evaluative judgements that are made about a project, service, policy, programme or organisation.
