What is Empowerment Evaluation?

Empowerment evaluation is the use of evaluation
concepts, techniques, and findings to foster self determination
and program improvement. Using both
qualitative and quantitative methods, empowerment
evaluation is designed to help people help themselves
and improve their programs using a form of
self evaluation and reflection. Using a three step
process, program participants conduct their own
evaluations with an outside evaluator serving as a
coach. The aim is to internalize and institutionalize
evaluation as part of the planning and management
of a program.
