A Study of the Relationship Between Evaluation Report Characteristics and Measures of Use in Two Countries

Authors :

This article reports the results of secondary analysis research done in order to determine if there were differences in evaluation utilization among major cultural groups. First, the evaluation utilization literature is reviewed. Second, original research and secondary analysis methods are discussed. Finally, the results of four cross-cultural canonical correlation analyses are presented. The results show that, among the American subjects, there was a strong correlation between evaluation utilization and a high-order construct called evaluation implementation. This relationship did not exist for the Mexico subjects. These results are discussed in a cross-cultural context and conclusions are drawn.
