Metaevaluation: Theoretical and Practical Guidelines for Evaluating Evaluations

Dr. Liliana Rodriguez-Campos, Dr. Rigoberto Rincones-Gomez.


A metaevaluation is the evaluation of the evaluation itself. Because only a small amount of evaluation studies are evaluated, this paper addresses both the theory and practice of metaevaluation across a wide variety of disciplines. The authors are going to blend theoretical grounding of metaevaluation with the checklists used to conduct metaevaluations. Particularly, you will learn how you can better employ the Joint Committee Program Evaluation Standards in planning, conducting, and reporting metaevaluations. Therefore, this paper shows you how to delineate the questions to be answered by a metaevaluation, and produce the necessary information in order to guide evaluations and publicly report their strengths and weaknesses. Moreover, you will also gain theoretical and practical insights on the role, and procedures of metaevaluations. Furthermore, you will be able to make judgments about the value of evaluations (assure that evaluations meet the standards of good evaluation practice), and assist evaluators when planning, conducting, and reporting their evaluation studies.
