In 2008, our volunteer research team conducted a survey of students and emerging evaluators to understand the factors that affect attraction to and retention in the evaluation field. We are now conducting a second study to look at change over time and new factors. The results of this study will be used to increase knowledge and awareness of how the field can better attract, develop, and retain new professionals.
This study conforms with the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) policy on research engagements.
If you have been working in the field of evaluation for five or fewer years or if you are taking courses in evaluation, we want to hear from you. Please follow this link to access the short survey: https://circum.com/en/see2023
If you know or work with someone who has been working in the field of evaluation for five or fewer years or who is taking courses in evaluation, please forward this survey to them by sharing the following link: https://circum.com/en/see2023
The survey is optional and is anticipated to take between 5 and 15 minutes to complete depending on your personal circumstances. Your answers will be treated confidentially. Only aggregate results will be published.
Preliminary results of this research will be presented at the 2023 CES Conference in Quebec City (June 19-21). Therefore, the questionnaire will only be available until April 17.
To thank you for completing the survey, we will gladly send you the research findings via e-mail as soon as they are publicly available. You may address questions and comments to the project managers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
