Engagement in relevant public processes

For evaluation to be truly useful it needs to be engage in public discussions about relevant issues, especially those involving strategic changes to the way government and non-government organisations plan, manage and implement or how data are gathered, reported and used. 

Example(s)

American Evaluation Association (AEA)

In 2001 and 2002, the American Evaluation Association Task Force on High Stakes Testing developed an AEA position statement on high stakes testing and research reports for evaluators to use to inform themselves.
