Evaluator competencies and performance development

Supporting professional development in evaluators can be challenging because evaluators come from varied backgrounds and conduct many different types of evaluations. Evaluation competencies are a means of determining the developmental needs of individual evaluators, and can be used as the foundation for a comprehensive performance development system within organizations that do evaluations.

Defining the Benefits, Outputs, and Knowledge Elements of Program Evaluation

The Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) has undertaken a project to explore the benefits that can be attributed to program evaluation, the outputs necessary to achieve those benefits, and the knowledge and skills needed to produce the outputs. Benefits, outputs, and knowledge elements were articulated and confirmed through a number of consultations with CES members and the international evaluation community.
