Caroline Heider opens the debate on evaluation criteria at  Rethinking Evaluation – Have we had enough of R/E/E/I/S? | Independent Evaluation Group

The R/E/E/I/S criteria became common ground to evaluators world-wide. However, they add to the nerdy jargon which hinders the usability of evaluation results. Policy and programming speak other jargons, have other criteria. Evaluation must get fit do get the job done. In my opinion, the job is to guide evidence-based decision-making towards the world we want, before 2030.
