Introduction to section on values in evaluation praxis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There has yet to be consensus within the field on whose and what criteria, or values, should be used to judge program worth. Furthermore, evaluators continue to grapple with decisions about which stakeholder values are to be included in evaluation, and if evaluators should be advocating or prescribing certain values or not. This introduction very briefly highlights the discourse associated with valuing in evaluation and summarizes the four articles in the Values in Evaluation Praxis section.
