Eval11 Session 229: How program evaluation standards are put into professional practice. Development of an action theory for evaluation policy and research on evaluation

The Program Evaluation Standards, issued by the Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation, aim to enhance the quality of the professional practice of evaluation. However, three decades and two major revisions after publication of their first edition, little is known beyond anecdotal evidence about the actual use and impact of the standards on the profession. The standards themselves do not explicitly articulate the mechanisms which are expected to make them instrumental in improving the practice of evaluation. Based on theoretical considerations and an analysis of the standards' underlying assumptions, a conceptual framework is proposed which outlines such mechanisms on individual and evaluation policy levels. This action theory aims to guide evaluation policy in further promoting the standards’ application and utility

Checklist for Assessing Your Evaluation Questions

This checklist is a tool to help ensure that the evaluation questions we create will be useful, relevant, and feasible. In keeping with the new accountability standard, it also provides a format for documenting our decisions when selecting evaluation questions. Drawing from an extensive literature search, the checklist was created by evaluators in CDC's National Asthma Control Program with helpful input from members of the OL-ECB TIG, the Atlanta-area Evaluation Association, and the CDC Chronic Evaluators Network, as well as from participants in an AEA roundtable (2012) and a demonstration (2014)
