Culturally Responsive Evaluation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter provides a historical record of the development of culturally responsive evaluation (CRE), describes the theory that guides CRE practice, and demonstrates how practice applications inform and contribute to CRE theory. The chapter begins with a summary and history of CRE, from its inception in the evaluation literature to its current moment and use in training, professional development workshops, publications, and practice. It then presents a framework used to distinguish application of CRE in several dimensions of evaluation practice. Finally, the chapter illustrates what CRE theory looks like in practice through the illustration of three practice applications published in the last decade. Future implications of CRE suggest that new approaches to core concepts such as validity deserve more exploration.
