The Using Evaluation Data Form.
Roecks, Alan L.; Casper, Paul
The Using Evaluation Data Form (UEDF) represents a psychological lever for getting a program's decision maker to consider major evaluation findings. The form may be used at any point of the evaluation process when sufficient data exist to support a finding deserving of action or reaction by the project staff. By local policy, it is required for inclusion in all end-of-year evaluation reports. Findings are results of evaluation activities conducted throughout the year. The process of the form's use is initiated when the evaluator lists, in draft form, findings the evaluator desires to be considered for possible action by the project manager. Findings are reported descriptively rather than judgmentally. In most instances, the evaluator will discuss these findings with the project manager. Each finding is addressed by the manager, indicating the action taken, or to be taken. Justification for no action or action contrary to the findings, must be explained. The "Action" column represents the project manager's reply to the evaluation findings. An example form is attached for review. The form is effective to the extent that the system requires the program people be committed to a course of action in response to evaluation data. (Author)
