Responsive Evaluation.
Barden, Meg
Evaluation activities should always be considered in terms of the effect that they have on the persons or programs being evaluated. This is a particularly critical concept when young children are being evaluated. Evaluation should be of some value to the persons or programs being evaluated. For example, when a Follow Through program is being evaluated, persons in the community should be assisted in developing the skills they need to conduct evaluative activities valuable to them. In other words, every evaluation should be considered in terms of its effects on the individuals or programs being evaluated. Procedures commonly used to measure outcomes in early childhood programs are conceived too narrowly and place artificial constraints on naturalness and spontaneity. (Author/KM)
