Farber, Irvin J.
The role of the evaluation supervisor as internal auditor and his or her responsibility for assuring the independence and objectivity of evaluation results are discussed. Four sources of compromise of objectivity are discussed: factual, political, involvement, and affective. The first two sources of compromise cannot be accepted, A code of ethical evaluation practices is needed to deal with them. The second two sources of compromise arise from people's relating to other people. Knowledge of these relationships enables the evaluation supervisor to deal as an auditor with effects. The relationship of the evaluation supervisor to the evaluator and the program manager are discussed. (Author)
