Using the BetterEvaluation Rainbow Framework

This compact version of the Rainbow Framework prompts you to think about a series of key questions. It is important to consider all these issues, including reporting, at the beginning of an evaluation. The Framework can be used to plan an evaluation or to locate information about particular types of methods.


An expanded version of the Rainbow Framework showing options or methods for each question can be downloaded here.
