  • Opportunities and Challenges Ahead for University-Based Evaluator

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: John M. LaVelle, Stewart I. Donaldson
      Pages: 428 - 438
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Volume 42, Issue 3, Page 428-438, September 2021.
      The profession of evaluation continues to grow, generating more demand for evaluation services than can be fulfilled by the supply of well-trained evaluation practitioners. In this brief forum article, we discuss the current state of evaluator education in the United States and the ways in which university-based programs support the development of evaluation practitioners and scholars. We then discuss the opportunities and challenges university-based programs face, focusing on program design, the challenges of being an evaluation-focused faculty member, and the specific needs of evaluation graduate students. We conclude by providing a research agenda for evaluation scholars interested in advancing the knowledge base about university-based evaluator education.

  • Using Social Psychology to Constructively Involve Colleagues in Internal
           Evaluation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Alison Rogers, Leanne M. Kelly, Alicia McCoy
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Internal evaluators can lead positive, helpful, promotive interactions among colleagues to make evaluation more appropriate, understandable, and accessible. As the motivations and abilities of non-evaluator colleagues are highly varied, interpersonal skills help facilitate cooperation and promote evaluation. Social interdependence theory from social psychology can assist with understanding teamwork and developing interpersonal competence. While the literature links social interdependence theory with evaluation, there is limited understanding of its application in practice. In this article, we share our internal evaluation experiences in three Australian nonprofit organizations to elucidate how we harnessed social connections and interpersonal dynamics to achieve cooperative goals. The purpose of this article is to share our process for using theory and literature to assist with reflecting, planning, and acting, around the way we interact with colleagues. Evaluators may find this process useful when considering how to personalize professional development around interpersonal competencies for evaluation.

  • A Behavioral Design to Reform Italy’s Evaluation Policy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mita Marra
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Drawing on the extensive ethnographic research I conducted on Italy’s performance evaluation system, this article highlights the cognitive biases associated with evidence use in decision making and institution working. Framing effects, status quo bias, motivated reasoning, and tacit conflicts between personal and organizational interests were only some of the behavioral phenomena policy makers, managers, and evaluators showed to limit their exposure to performance information. Integrating behavioral findings with theories of governance, evaluation utilization, and critical evidence–informed policymaking, this article discusses behavioral reform strategies to overcome (i) tacit conflicts of interests among evaluators, (ii) the compliance mentality with performance assessment among managers, and (iii) adversarial relationships between courts and administrative agencies as well as polarized politics with respect to evidence use and experts’ behavior. A behavioral design is relevant to reform evaluation policies, especially in countries where performance regimes have been criticized, contested, resisted, and/or perceived as red tape and surveillance mechanisms.

      Authors: Maisha M. Syeda, Meghan Fournie, Maria C. Ibanez, Claire V. Crooks
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Community-based partnerships are integral to mental health programming and research. However, there are limited published guidelines that apply the principles of community-based participatory research (CBPR), especially within the context of supporting vulnerable youth populations. This article demonstrates the application of the CBPR principles in cocreating an evaluation approach for a healthy relationships program for vulnerable youths with community partners. We present our research procedures and activities and highlight the importance of having a trauma-informed lens and flexibility with the research process and outcomes. We conclude the article by sharing our lessons learned and providing recommendations for future CBPR with vulnerable youths.

  • Transformative Needs Assessment Methodology: A Mixed Approach for
           Organizations Serving Marginalized Communities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nicole Sankofa
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Needs assessments (NAs) for marginalized communities would ideally contextualize needs in the sociocultural context, use agency-supportive methods, and result in liberatory action planning. This article develops the Transformative Needs Assessment With Marginalized Communities (TNAMC) using a mixed-methods approach that examines internal and external factors of needs for marginalized communities using liberatory methods to arrive at emancipatory action planning. This nonlinear process includes identifying concerns, checking assumptions, action committee selection, identifying need areas, situating need areas in context, identifying metrics of needs, collecting and analyzing data, prioritizing needs, creating action strategies, and developing an action plan. Each phase is discussed using the examination of anti-recidivism adolescent development needs in a predominately Black juvenile detention facility (N = 87 juveniles) as exemplar. The development of TNAMC is designed to aid NA evaluators in designing assessments that integrate social action as a primary purpose of the NA while empowering marginalized communities throughout research processes.

  • Critical Evaluation Capital (CEC): A New Tool for Applying Critical Race
           Theory to the Evaluand

      Authors: Alice E. Ginsberg
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      This article presents a new tool called Critical Evaluation Capital (CEC) designed to address issues of equity and social justice in program evaluation. CEC is grounded in the tenants of critical race theory and inspired by Yosso’s work on community cultural wealth which raises critical issues of positionality and access. CEC is a system for identifying, quantifying, and disrupting the impact of different kinds of power and privilege (named here as capital) that influence the evaluation process and may distort its findings and/or alter its impact. CEC is not meant to be an entirely new evaluation framework or approach, but rather it is designed to be used as a “tool” in conjunction with other contemporary evaluation methodologies, specifically those that reposition the role of the evaluation from an “objective” outsider to an engaged stakeholder. I introduce and describe herein seven foundational categories of CEC, including framing capital, identity capital, connectivity capital, inquiry capital, risk capital, symbolic capital, and dissemination capital, along with a series of accompanying critical questions to guide reflective practice for each capital. I also describe how CEC can be applied across the evaluand—both proactively and retrospectively. I conclude with some key opportunities and challenges CEC presents for evaluators and other key stakeholder groups in the evaluand.

  • Implementing QDAS Throughout an Evaluation Project Using the Five-Level
           QDA Method

      Authors: Kyle L. Bower
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this paper is to introduce the Five-Level Qualitative Data Analysis (5LQDA) method for ATLAS.ti as a way to intentionally design methodological approaches applicable to the field of evaluation. To demonstrate my analytical process using ATLAS.ti, I use examples from an existing evaluation of a STEM Peer Learning Assistant program. Aligned with the 5LQDA method for ATLAS.ti, I first contextualize the strategies used to develop the analytical framework (Levels 1 & 2) and then deconstruct the translation process (Level 3) of pairing conceptual strategies with software tools. I then demonstrate the potential of the software in terms of selected and constructed tools (Levels 4 & 5) and discuss the importance of choosing tools aligned with the project's conceptual strategies. This paper acts as a resource to convey the value of integrating 5LQDA for ATLAS.ti throughout qualitative evaluation by engaging in an iterative process that creates opportunity for engagement.

  • A Within-Study Approach to Evaluating the Role of Moderators of Impact in
           Limiting Generalizations from “Large to Small”

      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      There is a burgeoning body of evidence on the average impacts of educational programs. Yet, for many local decision makers, because impacts can vary across sites, the question of whether a certain program will work in their particular district or school remains. This article addresses the question of the generalizability of large-scale average causal effects to specific locales, that is, from “large to small.” Our method evaluates whether impacts measured on the large-scale generalize to individual sites and whether adjusting for variation among sites in their characteristics accounts for impact heterogeneity that limits generalization. Our application to a multisite experimental evaluation in education shows that the average impact does not readily generalize to sites, with discrepancies between 0.17 and 0.38 standard deviations, and that characteristics of sites account only minimally for this variation. This emphasizes need for caution by local decision makers in accepting average impact findings as generalizable to their specific locales.

      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      This article describes our experience of conducting a 5-year, culturally responsive evaluation of a federal program with Indigenous communities. It describes how we adapted tenets from “participatory evaluation models” to ensure cultural relevance and empowerment. We provide recommendations for evaluators engaged in similar efforts. The evaluation included stakeholder engagement through a Steering Committee and an Evaluation Working Group in designing and implementing the evaluation. That engagement facilitated attention to Indigenous cultural values in developing a program logic model and medicine wheel and in gathering local perspectives through storytelling to facilitate understanding of community traditions. Our ongoing assessment of program grantees’ needs shaped our approach to evaluation capacity building and development of a diverse array of experiential learning opportunities and user-friendly tools and resources. We present practical strategies from lessons learned during the evaluation design and implementation phases of our project that might be useful for other evaluators.

      Authors: Rachel D. Stelmach, Elizabeth Fitch, Molly Chen, Meagan Meekins, Rebecca M. Flueckiger, Rajeev Colaço
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Monitoring, evaluation, and research activities generate important data, but they often fail to change policies or programs. In addition, local program staff and partners often feel disconnected from these activities, which undermines their ownership of data and results. To bridge the gaps between monitoring, evaluation, and research and to give them a common purpose through locally owned, actionable learning, we developed an integrated Monitoring, Evaluation, Research, Learning, and Adapting (MERLA) framework. Implemented and refined in over 20 countries, the framework integrates data-gathering methodologies with collaborative techniques for translating evidence into knowledge that influences program practice and government policy. In this publication, we describe the MERLA framework and present two case studies demonstrating how its application enables learning and adaptation led by in-country teams.

  • The Intersection of Counseling Microskills and Qualitative Interviewing
           and Reporting in the Study of Sensitive Topics

      Authors: Jenna M. LaChenaye, Shannon McCarthy
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Sensitive topics evaluation presents both a maze and a minefield to qualitative evaluators due to their complexity and their potential to create areas of misanalysis. For novice and experienced qualitatve practitioners alike, the evaluator can find the task of broaching complex content and developing trusting relationships to be serious methodological hurdles. In particular, the exercise of exploring and analyzing sensitive topics may increase strain as the evaluator seeks to access the abstract and intangible aspects of often distressing subjective content. To assist qualitative evaluators in overcoming these hurdles, the authors propose a collaborative analysis approach informed by counseling strategies and reflecting skills.

      Authors: Melvin M. Mark
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Premised on the idea that evaluators should be familiar with a range of approaches to program modifications, I review several existing approaches and then describe another, less well-recognized option. In this newer option, evaluators work with others to identify potentially needed adaptations for select program aspects in advance. In describing this approach, I note the general steps involved and present alternative techniques for identifying, a priori, adaptations that may come to be needed. In the final section, I discuss implications of the a priori adaptation planning approach for the fidelity–adaptation trade-off, past criticism of logic models as overly fixed and linear, potential research and evaluation questions, the development of more detailed views of programs in evaluation theory and training, and possible resistance to adaptation planning. Discussion also considers the potential future of program adaptations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

      Authors: Sasha M. Albert, Marjorie A. Gutman, Dianne C. Barker, Samantha Nguyen, Ian Caughlan, George Grob
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      This article presents an analytic approach to assessing the relationship between policy advocacy activities and outcomes for discrete episodes of advocacy, using a holistic array of factors that affect the relationship between advocacy and policy change. The factors pertain to not only advocacy organizational structure and strategies, but also the policy environment, the policy issue and available options to address it, and technical assistance that advocates receive. By focusing on the entire context in which advocates operate, this approach can be used to assess both advocacy campaign strategies and the broader contextual factors that contribute to advocacy outcomes. The array of factors also facilitates analytic generalizability across advocacy episodes, as evaluators can compare the role of similar factors across advocacy efforts. This analytic approach is illustrated by its application to a multiple case study evaluation of Voices for Healthy Kids.

      Authors: Hind Al Hudib, J. Bradley Cousins
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Evaluation policy has been identified as an important means of shaping and influencing organizational evaluation practice, yet, to date, little empirical research has been conducted to deepen our understanding of this relationship. The purpose of this study was to illuminate evaluation policy’s role in leveraging organizational capacity to do and use evaluation. We interviewed 18 published evaluation scholars and practitioners from North America and Europe about this topic. A thematic analysis of findings underscores the importance of context, policy attributes, enablers, and organizational benefits. Based on the findings, we developed an ecological conceptual framework to guide thinking about the role of evaluation policy in capacity building. We discuss these findings in terms of practical implications of understanding context, redressing the imbalance between learning and accountability purposes of evaluation, and organizational leadership, and we conclude with some implications for research.

  • Creating With, Not For People: Theory of Change and Logic Models for

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Marisol L. Meyer, Ceewin N. Louder, Guerda Nicolas
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Intervention scientists have used program theory-driven evaluation to design, implement, and assess the success of intervention programs for decades. However, interventions often are designed without the input of the community for which they are intended. The lack of incorporation of community members’ voices that participate in various intervention programs and the de-emphasis of systemic influences on program outcomes may decrease the extent to which participants experience intended positive outcomes. This often leads to interventions that are irrelevant at best and harmful at worst. Theory of change and logic models are two forms of theory-driven evaluation that can be used in tandem to incorporate community voices into program design and implementation while attending to systemic influences on the program. The following paper presents a stage model process for creating and utilizing both a theory of change and logic model for community-based intervention programs aiming to work with ethnically and racially diverse and immigrant populations.

      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      A budding area of research is devoted to studying evaluator curriculum, yet to date, it has focused exclusively on describing the content and emphasis of topics or competencies in university-based programs. This study aims to expand the foci of research efforts and investigates the extent to which evaluators agree on what competencies should guide the development and implementation of evaluator education. This study used the Delphi method with evaluators (n = 11) and included three rounds of online surveys and follow-up interviews between rounds. This article discusses on which competencies evaluators were able to reach consensus. Where consensus was not found, possible reasons are offered. Where consensus was found, the necessity of each competency at both the master’s and doctoral levels is described. Findings are situated in ongoing debates about what is unique about what novice evaluators need to know and be able to do and the purpose of evaluator education.

      Authors: Alana R. Kinarsky, Christina A. Christie
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Since 2007, two taxonomies have been proposed to identify the components of evaluation practice that may be specified in an evaluation policy. Little is known, however, about how these taxonomies align with evaluation policies developed by philanthropic foundations. Through thematic analysis, this article first compares 12 foundation evaluation policies to the components of the two existing taxonomies. Based on this analysis, an updated taxonomy is proposed, with 11 components to inform evaluation policies in the philanthropic sector and beyond. The 12 foundation policies are then reexamined in relation to the new taxonomy to compare their length, breadth, and depth. This article concludes with implications for practice and suggestions for future research.

      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Actively engaging adolescents in meaningful program evaluation is a topic of growing interest. One possibility for such engagement is the use of photographs as part of visual evaluation, so that youth can directly engage with the research process. In this Method Note, we describe the development and implementation of a participatory, photo-based evaluation method for youth health promotion/prevention programs. Youth in this study were participants in a gender-transformative healthy relationships program for boys. We present literature supporting the use of photographs as a visual research method and for involving youth as active participants in evaluation, and explore the feasibility, utility, and acceptability of this innovative application of existing methods based on researcher experience and youth feedback. We conclude with implications for photo-based evaluation of health promotion/prevention programs, highlighting the promise of this method for promoting critical youth engagement in evaluation and the creation of meaningful knowledge translation tools.

      Authors: Jean L. Wiecha, Mary K. Muth
      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Most Americans consume diets at odds with nutrition recommendations, contributing to our ongoing epidemics of noncommunicable diseases. One strategy for accelerating progress toward healthier diets involves formal agreements between companies and nongovernmental organizations to develop new products, reformulate existing products, and implement new marketing strategies. Although the general intention for industry agreements is to generate public health benefits, their goals and activities may not align with this intention. Based on a literature review and technical assistance we provided to organizations engaged in industry agreements, we believe that increasing scientific scope and rigor in evaluations of voluntary food and beverage industry agreements could improve potential public health benefits and understanding of their actual effects. We provide recommendations for external, unconflicted funding that permits comprehensive, independent, and rigorous evaluation of voluntary industry agreements.

      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      The present study explores how Black and White youth respond to measures of subjective well-being within the context of critical race theory (CRT). Three levels of measurement invariance (i.e., configural, metric and scalar) were examined for indicators of subjective well-being. We hypothesized that there would be limited measurement invariance across groups based on the premise established by CRT that youth of color experience and perceive life differently than their White peers, which was supported. The findings of this study demonstrate that the measures work as expected within groups, but there is a considerable lack of invariance across groups. This study also provides some evidence that racial/ethnic differences cannot be taken for granted when assessing SWB in youth.

      This study systematically reviewed evidence regarding health program and service evaluations in Indigenous contexts. Following the PRISMA guidelines and combining terms for ‘Indigenous populations’ and ‘health programs and services’. Eight principles emerged: Principle 1: Adopting Indigenous led or co-led approaches is vital to balance power relationships by prioritizing self-determination, Principle 2: Evaluation team should include local Indigenous community members, Principle 3: Indigenous community knowledge and practice should be foundational, Principle 4: Evaluations must be responsive and flexible to meet the needs of the local community, Principle 5: Evaluations should respect and adhere to local Indigenous protocols, culture, wisdom and language, Principle 6: Evaluations should emphasize reciprocity, shared learnings and capacity building, Principle 7: It is important to build strong relationships and trust between and within researcher teams, evaluators and communities, and Principle 8: The evaluation team must acknowledge community capacity and resources by investing in time and relationships.

      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Evaluative criteria define a “high quality” or “successful” evaluand and provide the basis for judgment of merit and worth, yet they are often assumed and implicit in the evaluation process. This article presents an empirically supported model that describes and integrates two aspects of criteria: domain and source. Domain identifies the focus or substance of a criterion, while source describes the individual, group, or document from which it is drawn. Developed from a synthesis of evaluation literature and empirical analysis of evaluation reports, the model defines 11 criteria domains and 10 sources and reveals the relationships among them. In this integrated model, the two dimensions can be used together as a thinking tool to guide evaluators in specifying criteria, in empirical research on the valuing process, and as a conceptual framework and language for theorists prescribing criteria selection.

      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Observations are widely used in research and evaluation to characterize teaching and learning activities. Because conducting observations is typically resource intensive, it is important that inferences from observation data are made confidently. While attention focuses on interrater reliability, the reliability of a single-class measure over the course of a semester receives less attention. We examined the use and limitations of observation for evaluating teaching practices, and how many observations are needed during a typical course to make confident inferences about teaching practices. We conducted two studies based on generalizability theory to calculate reliabilities given class-to-class variation in teaching over a semester. Eleven observations of class periods over the length of a semester were needed to achieve a reliable measure, many more than the one to four class periods typically observed in the literature. Findings suggest practitioners may need to devote more resources than anticipated to achieve reliable measures and comparisons.

      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Large-scale education interventions aimed at diminishing disparities and generating equitable learning outcomes are often complex, involving multiple components and intended impacts. Evaluating implementation of complex interventions is challenging because of the interactive and emergent nature of intervention components. Methods that build from systems science have proven useful for addressing evaluation challenges in the complex intervention space. Complexity science shares some terminology with systems science, but the primary aims and methods of complexity science are different from those of systems science. In this paper we describe some of the language and ideas used in complexity science. We offer a set of priorities for evaluation of complex interventions based on language and ideas used in complexity science and methodologies aligned with the priorities.

      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      Photovoice is an empowering, qualitative, community-based participatory research method that engages participants to take photographs and reflect on their meanings. We employed a novel application of a Photovoice-inspired methodology to evaluate perinatal home visiting services. This article describes the feasibility and utility of remote implementation of a Photovoice-inspired project in one state’s federally funded Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Initiative. The initial project aimed to identify aspects of parenting roles/identities, goals, and home visitor–client relationship that can be leveraged to improve program engagement and retention. Training materials were sent to home visitors who acted as liaisons with parents. Reflective interviews about this photo-elicitation method conducted with parents, home visitors, and the evaluators following the project revealed that informational materials were beneficial to understanding the process. Home visitors were noted as gatekeepers and key motivators. Trainings, flexibility, timely communication, and logistics should be considered when remotely implementing Photovoice.

      Abstract: American Journal of Evaluation, Ahead of Print.
      This method note presents Q methodology as a useful tool for evaluators to add to their practice toolbox. Q methodology, which involves both quantitative and qualitative techniques, can help researchers and evaluators systematically understand subjectivity and the communicability of opinions and perspectives. We first provide an overview of Q methodology, followed by a brief summary of how evaluators are using Q, and an explanation of the steps for implementing Q methodology. Either by itself or with other methods, the potential uses of Q methodology in evaluation are diverse. For practical demonstration, we describe how Q methodology was used in a recent evaluation in the UK to understand stakeholder subjectivity within the program. We then reflect upon the pros and cons of using Q in program evaluation, concluding that it constitutes a worthwhile tool for evaluating complex programs.
