This is a free event organised by the NSW Regional Network Committee of the AES. Our seminar series provides an opportunity for you to meet with AES members and others in New South Wales and to share and learn from the experiences of fellow evaluators. Members are encouraged to bring along colleagues with an interest in the topic even if they are not yet members of the AES. Please pass this onto your colleagues and networks.
The recent AES conference highlighted this growing interest in the use of rubrics in an evaluation as a tool for measuring progress toward outcomes. They allow a participatory approach to developing the scale-points that identify the outcomes we wish to measure and the key steps in getting there.
This presentation will discuss whether there are some common underlying scale-points that can be used when developing rubrics across a wide range of contexts, such capability building, behaviour change, and regulatory maturity. These common scale-points can provide some consistency to the measures derived from rubrics, and to also ground discussion with stakeholders about the characteristics that define each point on the scale.
Participants will get an opportunity during the presentation to directly apply some of the ideas raised in the presentation.
Dr George Argyrous is the Research and Evaluation Manager at the Institute for Public Policy and Governance, UTS.
