About evaluation...

Evaluation is something that is a common activity for all of us. We are constantly making evaluative decisions about what to wear, what to do, where to go, who to choose, how we’re doing, and so on. In this section we want to assist in translating your everyday understandings to more formal evaluation procedures. Evaluation practice has expanded and become more complex in the last 50 years—since the first formal evaluations were undertaken—our purpose is to provide useful information in a way that is both understandable and practical.
