La figure de l'évaluateur, mi-ingénieur mi-bricoleur

This article describes an evaluation experience in health promotion. Caught in a wide range of representations, challenges, and expectations, the evaluator adapts her practice to provide a quality evaluation to address the users' needs. The authors analyse the evaluation process with a focus on the French Evaluation Society's principles and suggest adjustments specific to the field of health promotion. The evaluator's ability to take on several roles and to adapt to the context is fundamental here.
