Using the Guiding Principles to Improve Your Evaluation Practice Slides and Handouts from SI10

Session Description: The Guiding Principles for Evaluators focus on five areas of evaluation practice: systematic inquiry, competence, integrity and honesty, respect for people, and responsibilities for general and public welfare. The Principles guide the professional practice of evaluators, and inform evaluation clients and the general public about the principles they can expect to be upheld by professional practitioners. This session will share ways to use the Principles to improve the ways in which you plan for and conduct evaluations and work with stakeholders and clients. After a brief presentation that introduces the Principles, participants will work together in small groups to discuss the Principles as they relate to a topical case study. Through case explorations, lecture and small and large group discussions, you will gain a deeper understanding of the practical applications of the Principles. The workshop will also introduce resources—print, web-based and collegial networks—that evaluators can consult to handle professional dilemmas that arise in their practice. You will receive copies of the workshop presentation, the case study, the Principles in full and abbreviated brochure format, and a list of resources for more information and consultation.

This is an excellent set of documents. Thank you so much! Although I missed the presentation at AEA, I would like to use the Case Study documents as a centerpiece to the module on ethics for the graduate-level course on evaluation that I teach for the School of Public Health, UC Berkeley.
I will link the Creative Commons License with the document.
Thanks, Leslie!
