Effectiveness in view of the goals of the evaluation

Will the assessment lead to improvement?   
If learning and change are desired effects of the assessment process these effects should be defined and included in the evaluation of the assessment. That is why it is so important to identify some intermediate results to be accomplished during the evaluation process in order to raise the question of effectiveness at an early stage.

  • How much of what we want to find out have we revealed so far?
  • How does that compare with what we intended?
  • What can we do to raise the effectiveness of our next step?
