Independent evaluation: A major lesson learned

The relationship between the evaluators and those being evaluated is at times

characterized by tension. IOE’s experience shows that to achieve optimum results

both parties need to accept the two primary principles of evaluation:

(i)

Independent evaluation gives greater freedom to evaluators and enhances the

credibility of evaluations and the benefi ts to the institution.

(ii) Effective learning is achieved when the evaluators and the staff of the institution

are ready to collaborate during the evaluation process, remain receptive and

permit transparency during the entire process.
