APRIL 10, 2015
Together with AIHS, CES hosted The Naked Truth: The State of Evaluation in Alberta. The forum was designed by the Chapter to engage participants in provocative discussions and the sharing of information about:
- What is happening in evaluation in Alberta and what evaluators are working on
- The value of evaluation from the perspective of evaluators and those who use evaluations
- An action plan for advancing the profession of evaluation in the province
The objective of the forum was to provide a gathering place for evaluators to connect with each other and also with the users of evaluation. Participants brought a great level of enthusiasm and energy, and their contributions are informing the development of CES Alberta & NWT’s Advocacy Action Plan.
We thank all respondents for sharing their feedback on the event, and have compiled survey responses in this report. The CES Alberta & NWT Board will discuss the findings at our upcoming 2015/16 planning meeting.
