What is the cost benefit ratio of the assessment?

Are we doing what we can, to reduce the investment of time in executing the evaluation, and yet to provide worthwhile outcomes?

  • Is it necessary to involve as many respondents as we do or can we work with samples?
  • Is the method chosen for data gathering (Interview, questionnaire, observation etc.) efficient?
  • Have we chosen a sensible level of detail in our instruments or in our analyses and our reports?

Realise that efficient evaluation gives quicker answers. By doing so the evaluators better serve the learning process of the people involved. Efficiency definitely is a quality!
