Abstract: Saudi Arabia government and organizations have begun to consider the importance of professional evaluation. However there are few formal evaluation policies to support professional evaluation standards and practices. The Program Evaluation Standards by the Joint Committee (1994) is used as a guiding standard (and informal policy) for evaluation, although there are other frameworks that may influence how evaluation is practiced. This presentation will address two main issues. First, what evaluation standards are used to guide evaluation policy in Saudi Arabia and how can these be modified or adapted to insure high quality evaluation practice. Second, what are good evaluation models and how can these approaches improve the overall quality of evaluation in this national context.
