Performance Evaluation as a Distinct Hybrid Form of Research Methods

Performance evaluation should be viewed as an applied hybrid method distinct from program evaluation (defined by Peter Rossi) which combines methods from four different institutions each speaking a different policy language (Policy, Management, Programs and Accountability) as well as mixed methods. This includes two meta-data issues: Process Management ((the method of the “business process”) includes the management using participatory evaluation of a process-based chain of events leading to desired outcome(s)) and Research Metrics (a solid grounding in the “facts” about whether there is progress towards desired goals)

Eval16_Using Evaluation Tools, Methods, and Thinking in Planning NIH Common Fund Programs

We present how a combination of methods grounded in evaluation practice inform strategic planning for biomedical research programs managed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund. Frequently used methods include analysis of the NIH research portfolio, landscape scans to identify other funding entities in the research area, and review of the scientific literature
