L’évaluateur et la sagesse pratique : vecteurs essentiels pour assurer la crédibilité de l’évaluation

This article revisits data collected during previous research conducted by Hurteau and Houle (2008). At the time, the researchers were not able to account for the evaluator’s personal skills to pilot an evaluation, the results of which were acceptable to the stakeholders, and to conduct a comprehensive analysis, for lack of an appropriate theoretical framework. By introducing the concept of practical wisdom, House (2015) offers them the opportunity to do so. The author defines this concept as “... doing the right thing in the special circumstances of performing the job” (p. 88).
