Abstract

In the end evaluation involves making judgements about value and effecting change in the direction of the ‘good’. It is these two central features that distinguish evaluation from research. In this chapter we look at ways in which the evidence of practice generated for the evaluation may be analysed and used to inform the making of judgements about whether the practice is ‘good’, ‘good enough’, ‘poor’ or ‘corrupt’. We also reflect upon ways in which evaluation may be used to facilitate changes in practice and policies in the direction of the ‘good’.
