Dr. Jody Fitzpatrick—Associate Professor, University of Colorado Denver and President-Elect of the American Evaluation Association

Evaluation Cafe: Thursday, September 20, 2012

Many elements of context influence evaluation but some primary ones include the setting of the evaluand
(education, social welfare, mental health, environment) and the discipline or training of the evaluator
and the key stakeholders. Both of these contextual issues influence the culture and values concerning
evaluation. I (Fitzpatrick) will talk about the diversity in evaluation in the United States and other countries
today and how these elements, setting and discipline, influence approaches and practice in
evaluation.
