Evaluator Training: Content and Topic Valuation in University Evaluation Courses
Davies, Randall; MacKay, Kathryn
American Journal of Evaluation, v35 n3 p419-429 Sep 2014
Quality training opportunities for evaluators will always be important to the evaluation profession. While studies have documented the number of university programs providing evaluation training, additional information is needed concerning what content is being taught in current evaluation courses. This article summarizes the findings of a survey administered to university faculty who provide such courses, including (a) topics taught, (b) time spent on topics, and (c) instructors perceptions of topic importance. Study results show considerable diversity in the training of new evaluators. This diversity is often complicated by the range of contexts, purposes, and situations involved.
