A General Model for Complete Ethnographic Evaluations.
Dobbert, Marion Lundy; Dobbert, Daniel Joseph
Rather than arguing for the desirability of using anthropological tools in evaluation, it is assumed by the authors that anthropological tools are desired for certain reasons which they outline. In this article, they aim to systematize their own approach to anthropological-ethnographic evaluation in order that both evaluation agencies and educators may have available a firmly outlined statement which may be used in planning anthropological evaluative approaches, in communication about ethnographic approaches, and judging proposals for anthropological forms of research. This outline is useful for only one of the major models of applied anthropological research, the agency-consultive model. It does not delineate the kinds of additional skills needed to practice action anthropology or research and development anthropology although persons working with either model may find that evaluation is a part of their work. It is hoped that this guide will help anthropogists and supporters of the ethnographic model in evaluation communicate the substance of this endeavor and that it will prove a useful tool in training students in both fieldwork and its application to evaluation.
