Eval11 Session 974: Research On Evaluation - Anytime, Anywhere, Evaluation Ethics DO Matter

This presentations provides an international comparison of evaluation ethical challenges identified by evaluation communities in Canada, United States and Australia. While the dialogue around evaluation ethical challenges has been quieter in Canada, the presentation will highlight results from a 2010 national survey of Canadian evaluators. These will be analyzed against a backdrop of findings from other national surveys – members of the American Evaluation Association (1993; 2009) and the Australasian Evaluation Society (2003). Based on these findings, the authors (Heather Buchanan and Wayne MacDonald) argue for a more proactive agenda for the Canadian Evaluation Society to support the needs and challenges of its members in dealing with ethical challenges

Eval11 Poster 103: Evaluating health communication materials with on-the-move audiences

The effectiveness of such communication is difficult to evaluate. Efforts to assess the effectiveness of T-HANs have ranged from formative evaluation through focus groups with international travelers and physicians who might see patients with recent international travel history to outcome research through a cross-sectional survey of travelers arriving from Haiti during the cholera outbreak. A review of T-HAN evaluation methods, challenges and successes, and lessons learned will be presented, and ideas for methods and collaboration will be sought

Eval11 Session 861: Presentation Strategies for Improving International Development Evaluation TORs and RFPs

A 2010 study on TORs and RFPs issued by international development organizations found that rigid evaluation terms of reference (TORs) or requests for proposals (RFP) limit evaluators’ ability to determine (i) the best approach and methodology for given evaluation problem and (ii) the most feasible procedures for implementing the evaluation under given (and often unknown) timelines and budgets. On the other extreme, TORs are often vague and provide no budgetary guidelines leaving evaluators guessing as to what evaluation commissioners require. This paper presents real world strategies for international development commissioners to improve the quality of their TORs and RFPs by overcoming common mistakes such as short turnaround time for proposals, rushed start dates, short evaluation timeline, strict familiarity/experience requirements, and rigid guidelines for evaluation conduct. Session participants will be encouraged to share their suggestions for successful evaluation TORs and RFPs
