A New Eclectic Model for the Redirection of Evaluation Efforts.
Alkin, Marvin C.; Kosecoff, Jacqueline B.
A discussion of client evaluation is presented. One of the initial elements in performing an evaluation is "framing the decision context." In framing this context, the evaluator is faced with several key questions, for example, "Who are the decision makers or decision audiences to whom he will be presenting information?" and "What are the likely decisions that will be made as a consequence of information that he might present?" Additional dimensions of the decision context are explicit decision-making purposes, implicit decision-maker motives, developmental stage of programs, and the program's socio-political setting. (CK)
