Abstract

Attention to evaluation quality is commonplace, even if sometimes implicit. Drawing on her 2010 Presidential Address to the American Evaluation Association, Leslie Cooksy suggests that evaluation quality depends, at least in part, on the intersection of three factors: (a) evaluator competency, (b) aspects of the evaluation environment or context, and (c) the level and nature of supportive resources that are available in the evaluation community. In a brief reaction to her views, Mel Mark discusses selected implications of Cooksy's approach and comments on the notion of evaluation quality itself.
