Caitlyn D. Placek; Eric Budzielek; Lillian White; Deanna Williams – American Journal of Evaluation, 2024
Free-listing is a quick, semi-quantitative methodology commonly used by anthropologists to uncover information within a cultural domain. In this method note, we review how anthropologists have used free-listing in a variety of research settings. We then apply the social-ecological framework to describe how free-listing can be used for formative,…

Kaisha Crupi; Naomi Joy Godden – American Journal of Evaluation, 2024
There is a lack of instructional literature on how to conduct a feminist evaluation to highlight and transform systemic issues in gendered and intersecting power relations. Feminist Participatory Action Research (FPAR) enables a process for conducting community-driven, -led and -owned feminist evaluations that drive social justice actions. By…

Leanne M. Kelly; Phyo Pyae Thida (aka Sophia) Htwe – American Journal of Evaluation, 2024
This paper unpacks our efforts as external evaluators to work toward decolonizing our evaluation practice. Undertaking this writing exercise as a form of reflective practice demonstrated that decolonization is much more complex than simply translating materials, organizing locals to collect data, and building participants' capacity around Western…

Travis R. Moore; Luke Carmichael Valmadrid; Robyn Baragwanath; Nathaniel Haack; Lori Bakken – American Journal of Evaluation, 2024
The ethical guidelines for the American Evaluation Association and the principles of community-based participatory evaluation both state the importance of equitable stakeholder involvement. Regardless of the evaluation approach, however, evaluators are often confronted with gatekeepers, or those who control the access to stakeholders, information,…

John M. LaVelle; Clayton L. Stephenson; Scott I. Donaldson; Justin D. Hackett – American Journal of Evaluation, 2024
Psychological theory suggests that evaluators' individual values and traits play a fundamental role in evaluation practice, though few empirical studies have explored those constructs in evaluators. This paper describes an empirical study on evaluators' individual, work, and political values, as well as their personality traits to predict…

Anna Planas-Lladó; Xavier Úcar – American Journal of Evaluation, 2024
Empowerment is a concept that has become increasingly used over recent years. However, little research has been undertaken into how empowerment can be evaluated, particularly in the case of young people. The aim of this article is to present an inventory of dimensions and indicators of youth empowerment. The article describes the various phases in…

Bourgeois, Isabelle; Lemire, Sebastian Thomas; Fierro, Leslie Ann; Castleman, Ann Marie; Cho, Minji – American Journal of Evaluation, 2023
Evaluation capacity building (ECB) continues to attract the attention and interest of scholars and practitioners. Over the years, models, frameworks, strategies, and practices related to ECB have been developed and implemented. Although ECB is highly contextual, the evolution of knowledge in this area depends on learning from past efforts in a…

Hedberg, E. C. – American Journal of Evaluation, 2023
In cluster randomized evaluations, a treatment or intervention is randomly assigned to a set of clusters each with constituent individual units of observations (e.g., student units that attend schools, which are assigned to treatment). One consideration of these designs is how many units are needed per cluster to achieve adequate statistical…

Boyce, Ayesha S.; Tovey, Tiffany L.S.; Onwuka, Onyinyechukwu; Moller, J.R.; Clark, Tyler; Smith, Aundrea – American Journal of Evaluation, 2023
More evaluators have anchored their work in equity-focused, culturally responsive, and social justice ideals. Although we have a sense of approaches that guide evaluators as to how they should attend to culture, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), we have not yet established an empirical understanding of how evaluators measure DEI. In this…

Cox, Kyle; Kelcey, Benjamin – American Journal of Evaluation, 2023
Analysis of the differential treatment effects across targeted subgroups and contexts is a critical objective in many evaluations because it delineates for whom and under what conditions particular programs, therapies or treatments are effective. Unfortunately, it is unclear how to plan efficient and effective evaluations that include these…

Goble, Rob; Carr, Edward R.; Anderson, Jon – American Journal of Evaluation, 2023
Complexity and uncertainty are long-standing challenges for global development projects. Coping with both requires flexibility and adaptation, the ability to identify unexpected circumstances, seize opportunities, and respond to threats. Vigilance is critical; it resides within the domains of monitoring, evaluation, and learning. In practice,…

Bell, Stephen H.; Stapleton, David C.; Wood, Michelle; Gubits, Daniel – American Journal of Evaluation, 2023
A randomized experiment that measures the impact of a social policy in a sample of the population reveals whether the policy will work on average with universal application. An experiment that includes only the subset of the population that volunteers for the intervention generates narrower "proof-of-concept" evidence of whether the…

Phillips, Gregory, II; Felt, Dylan; Perez-Bill, Esrea; Ruprecht, Megan M.; Glenn, Erik Elías; Lindeman, Peter; Miller, Robin Lin – American Journal of Evaluation, 2023
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, Two-Spirit, and other sexual and gender minority (LGBTQ+) individuals encounter numerous obstacles to equity across health and healthcare, education, housing, employment, and other domains. Such barriers are even greater for LGBTQ+ individuals who are also Black, Indigenous, and People of Color…

Billman, Jennifer A.H. – American Journal of Evaluation, 2023
For over 30 years, calls have been issued for the western evaluation field to address implicit bias in its theory and practice. Although many in the field encourage evaluators to be culturally competent, ontological competence remains unaddressed. Grounded in an institutionalized distrust of non-western perspectives of reality and knowledge…

Picciotto, Robert – American Journal of Evaluation, 2023
According to Jennifer Billman, western evaluation bias against indigenous thinking is due to ontological incompetence. If so, the solution she offers (a highly abstract list of criteria) is inadequate since it fails to address let alone resolve a wide range of philosophical dilemmas at the intersection of logic and ontology. Furthermore, it fails…
