A first step forward: Context assessment

Authors


Abstract

In this chapter, we revisit and expand the context framework of Debra Rog, informed by three cases and by new aspects that we have identified. We then propose a way to move the framework into action, making context explicit. Based on the framework's components, we describe and illustrate a process we label context assessment (CA), which provides a means of identifying important contextrelated factors and integrating the implications of these within the three main stages of evaluation. © Wiley Periodicals, Inc., and the American Evaluation Association.
