The Evaluation Circle: Meta-evaluation: Assessing the Quality of Evaluations
The UOE Community Evaluation and Research Collaborative (CERC) at Michigan State University is pleased to announce the fourth year of The Evaluation Circle, a series of workshops on evaluation theory and practice for members of the MSU community.
All Evaluation Circle workshops are free and open to MSU students, faculty and staff.
Participants are asked to register in advance for these free workshops (please click the link below).
Meta-evaluation is a process for assessing and improving the quality of evaluations. Meta-evaluations hold evaluators and their evaluations accountable for meeting evaluation standards. In this session, we address why evaluation accountability is important. We consider internal and external meta-evaluations and discuss how each is conducted, with primary emphasis on external meta-evaluations. As evaluation quality standards guide meta-evaluation judgments, we review the most commonly used domestic and international evaluation standards. Throughout the session, we draw on examples from external meta-evaluations, including two recent meta-evaluations conducted on evaluations of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) efforts in sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean.
