A Note from the facilitator!
A strong current emphasis in the field of evaluation is on evidence. Good, robust evidence. Unquestionable facts/findings. Strengths of evidence. As you may know, or at least in USA, “truth” has become a relative term. Everyone questions everything and there is a natural tendency not to believe any statement, any “finding.” So providing strong, unquestionable evidence to findings in evaluation is crucial. Evidence starts with strong, good quality data – the foundation of all in our profession.
