Jugement crédible en évaluation de programme: définition et conditions requises

Program evaluation aims at establishing the quality of a program in order to generate a judgment that is valid and credible for the stakeholders. The present research aimed to gain a better understanding of the term "credible judgment" and to identify the required conditions to generate it. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with six experienced evaluators and clients. The results highlight the required conditions to ensure credible judgment: rigorous methodology, quality information, representation of various viewpoints, and coherence in developing argumentation.
