Strengthening Links Between Evaluation Theory and Practice, and More: Comments Inspired by George Grob’s 2017 Eleanor Chelimsky Forum Presentation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

George Grob presented the fifth and final Eleanor Chelimsky Forum address at the 2017 annual meeting of the Eastern Evaluation Research Society. In this commentary, I respond to several points that George raises in the American Journal of Evaluation paper based on that address. An overarching theme of my comments involves the potential for strengthening the linkages between evaluation theory and evaluation practice. Research on evaluation should also be added to this pairing.
