Evaluative Site Visits: A Methodological Review
Lawrenz, Frances; Keiser, Nanette; Lavoie, Bethann
American Journal of Evaluation, v24 n3 p341-352 2003
Site visits are a commonly employed, but little discussed, evaluation procedure. Our purpose is to review the state of the art regarding site visits, as well as to catalyze a discussion of site visits centering on the question of whether or not existing practices constitute a set of methods or a methodology. We define evaluative site visits and review the current state of practice in site visits. We also outline the differences between methods and methodology and consider whether or not the current state of practice constitutes a methodology.
