Abstract

This paper looked at methodological issues in evaluation when action research is a key element. In developing arguments in respect of locating the value in multiple perspectives it adds strength to the qualitative paradigm in terms of trustworthiness. Arguing that the engagement of participants in their own research leads to greater in-depth understanding of elements that underpin knowledge, decision making and change, the paper offers a qualitative, innovative, active approach to evaluation, and critique of evaluation approaches, for those wishing to engage in developmental evaluations for change.
