Participatory Evaluation Approaches

Jiří Remr


Main goal of the paper is to present the review of main characteristics that differentiate the participatory approaches from other ways of conducting evaluations. Based on comparative analysis, the five main characteristics are identified, explained and critically assessed. Central part of the paper is devoted to two different traditions within the participatory approaches. Frist one is practical participatory evaluation represented by utilization-focused approach by M. Patton. The second tradition is transformative participatory evaluation where the attention is put on empowerment evaluation approach by D. Fetterman. Moreover, the paper describes the historical framework within that the participatory approaches developed and it also identifies its inspirations. In this respect, the paper also presents the responsive approach that significantly influenced participatory evaluations.
