Evaluation tools

Send by emailPDF version

There are several tools resulting from our work over the last 15 years that we now use frequently. We published them, so others might use them as well to support their (self) evaluations. You might want to look at the information given on this website about the `Eval-Wiki: Glossar der Evaluation´ (glossary including English and French translations, descriptions and references to approximately 420 technical terms of evaluation) (Link zu Glossary) and the logic model `Programmbaum´.

The Gesellschaft für Evaluation’s (DeGEval) „Evaluation Standards“ have been published in English language.

Over the years we translated some of the evaluation checklists of the Western Michigan University’s Checklist Project http://www.wmich.edu/evalctr/checklists/) using the technical terms as defined in our glossary. You’ll find the translated checklists at our German website (Link zu http://www.univation.org/checklisten).

Since 1997 we host the mailing list `forum evaluation´ https://lists.uni-koeln.de/mailman/listinfo/forum-evaluation) which is now used by approximately 750 evaluators and people interested in evaluation (mostly from Germany, Austria, Switzerland) to discuss all matters related to evaluation, announce events or inform about calls for proposals and job postings. The list is in German language, but you may post your inquiries in English.

Together with our partner socialnet we maintain the website www.selbstevaluation.de that gives information and references on the topic of self evaluation. We are currently working on an English translation.

The Evaluator Lars Balzer offers on his portal news and links about evaluation (links, calendar and literature).
