Evaluation Examples of the SURE Model

  • Uranchimeg Tudevdagva


The structure-oriented evaluation model is a comparatively new model. This chapter contains several examples to explain all eight steps of the SURE model. All steps are linked in logical order, and the evaluator should follow these steps during the evaluation process as described in this chapter.

The first example is an abstract example. Aim of this example is to give the reader a deeper understanding and feeling for the model and the data processing part. Therefore, all calculation steps are explained in detail in this example. The reader can follow up all calculations from the beginning to the final computation of evaluation scores. This example is helpful for the evaluator in order to become familiar with the calculation processes of structure oriented evaluation model and the interpretation of evaluation results.

The next example shows advantages and opportunities of the model. This example uses several simulated data generated by online tool of SURE model. It is shown how the obtained evaluation results can be interpreted and how tendencies in the evaluation data can be identified by highlighting the data in color.

Two further examples are devoted to special applications, the evaluation of an active learned method as well as the evaluation of projects for investments.
