Exner-Cortens, Deinera; Sitter, Kathleen C.; Van Bavel, Marisa; Wright, Alysia – American Journal of Evaluation, 2022
Actively engaging adolescents in meaningful program evaluation is a topic of growing interest. One possibility for such engagement is the use of photographs as part of visual evaluation, so that youth can directly engage with the research process. In this Method Note, we describe the development and implementation of a participatory, photo-based…

Tipton, Elizabeth – American Journal of Evaluation, 2022
Practitioners and policymakers often want estimates of the effect of an intervention for their local community, e.g., region, state, county. In the ideal, these multiple population average treatment effect (ATE) estimates will be considered in the design of a single randomized trial. Methods for sample selection for generalizing the sample ATE to…

Chan, Wendy – American Journal of Evaluation, 2022
Over the past ten years, propensity score methods have made an important contribution to improving generalizations from studies that do not select samples randomly from a population of inference. However, these methods require assumptions and recent work has considered the role of bounding approaches that provide a range of treatment impact…

Rohanna, Kristen – American Journal of Evaluation, 2022
Evaluation practices are continuing to evolve, particularly in those areas related to formative, participatory, and improvement approaches. Improvement science is one of the evaluative practices. Its strength is that it seeks to embrace stakeholders' and frontline workers' knowledge and experience, who are often tasked with leading improvement…

The purpose of this study was to determine professional evaluators' perceptions of reflective practice (RP) and the extent and manner in which they engage in RP behaviors. Nineteen evaluators with 10 or more years of experience in the evaluation field were interviewed to explore our understanding and practice of RP in evaluation. Findings suggest…

Jaciw, Andrew P.; Unlu, Fatih; Nguyen, Thanh – American Journal of Evaluation, 2022
There is a burgeoning body of evidence on the average impacts of educational programs. Yet, for many local decision makers, because impacts can vary across sites, the question of whether a certain program will work in their particular district or school remains. This article addresses the question of the generalizability of large-scale average…

Lamia, Tamara L.; Lowry, Garry F.; McLees, Anita W.; Frazier, Cassandra M.; Young, Andrea C. – American Journal of Evaluation, 2021
The flexibility federal block grants provide recipients poses challenges for evaluation. These challenges include aggregating data on wide-ranging activities grant recipients implement and the outcomes they achieve. In 2014, we began designing an evaluation to address the challenges of assessing outcomes and to improve outcome accountability for…

Chen, Huey T.; Morosanu, Liliana; Bellury, Lanell M.; Teleaga, Jessica; Hardin, Abigail E. – American Journal of Evaluation, 2021
Intervention programs are open systems that must withstand the disturbances of the environments in which they are implemented if they are to thrive. Stakeholders can benefit from proactive insights related to potential program malfunction or failure. Evaluators have not developed approaches to serve this preventive function. This study proposes…

Patton, Michael Quinn – American Journal of Evaluation, 2021
In 2004, Robert Stake published a provocative article that asked: "How Far Dare an Evaluator Go Toward Saving the World?" This question raises the issue of what role evaluators' values play in the conduct of evaluations. Following review of Stake's premises, I present value statements from a diverse group of 40 evaluators working with…

Chauveron, Lisa M.; Samtani, Satabdi; Groner, Megan G.; Urban, Jennifer Brown; Linver, Miriam R. – American Journal of Evaluation, 2021
Although experts agree that diverse stakeholder inclusion enhances quality and equity in evaluation designs and implementation, diverse voices are often omitted. Particularly antithetical to principles of youth character development, evaluations for these programs should strive to include voices from various social, economic, community, and…

Odera, Erica L. – American Journal of Evaluation, 2021
Narrative case studies have shown that, when people are involved in an evaluation of a program they are part of, it can change how they experience the program. This study used a quasi-experiment to test this proposition empirically in the context a participatory action research curriculum called Youth as Researchers. Half of all Youth as…

Chilisa, Bagele; Mertens, Donna M. – American Journal of Evaluation, 2021
Transformative change is needed if the world is to achieve the sustainable development goals. Such change requires attention to culture, ethics, and values. We discuss the need to be responsive to the voices of Indigenous scholars in terms of the assumptions that guide methodological choices in the evaluation of international initiatives. We…

Rodriguez, Sophia; Acree, Jeremy – American Journal of Evaluation, 2021
This article problematizes methodological practices, specifically the use of surveys as tools of measurement in evaluation with migrant youth. Drawing from Foucault's "Genealogy of Ethics," we investigate the knowledge created about particular minoritized groups through the author's current evaluation, the power relations involved, and…

Mustonen, Tero – American Journal of Evaluation, 2021
The applicability of Indigenous ethics to the evaluation of ecological restoration is explored through two case examples involving the Indigenous Sámi rivers of Näätämö and Ponoi in the European North. Six key restoration approaches are described that would have been overlooked had it not been for the use of Indigenous ethics from the start of the…
