Federal Requirements Affecting Local Evaluation Use. Evaluation Productivity Project.
Use factors comprise those characteristics or elements present in evaluation settings that potentially affect use. This paper focuses on one such use factor, termed "written requirements for the evaluation." This factor includes the evaluation requirements accompanying federally-funded programs. Two questions are dealt with: how does this factor interact with other factors in evaluation, and is this interaction likely to have a positive or negative effect on use? What research has uncovered about the factors affecting local evaluation use is discussed, and the federal program evaluation requirements currently in effect are described. An ideal scenario is presented in which the factors have a high potential for stimulating local evaluation use. Finally, the impact of federal requirements or factors promoting evaluation use are discussed. (PN)
