From multipaper session 852: Research on Evaluator Competencies.
Abstract: Using Stevahn, King, Ghere, & Minnema’s (2005) Essential Competencies for Program Evaluators, a content analysis of articles/chapters for three theoretical evaluation approaches was conducted. The goal of the study is to examine the key competencies required to design and implement different evaluation approaches. The data collected will be analyzed by evaluation approach to find how they compare and differ on their emphasized use of specific evaluator competencies. The results of this study have numerous implications that can strengthen the quality of future evaluations through avenues such as evaluator training and additional research on evaluation specific to evaluation approaches. #EvaluatorCompetencies #ResearchonEvaluation #2010Conference
