---What we can learn from our (RE)evaluations--- 

2-Skills in Evaluating:



and layering


There are multiple perspectives from which to frame a problem and many layers (or connections/relationships/dimensions) to consider for your own evaluation. 


FRAMING a problem often refers to looking at it through a particular discipline or intitution:   Consider how you might use several frameworks for your evaluation-- such as evaluating a problem as a particular kind of problem:

  • economic
  • sociological
  • legal
  • environmental
  • political 
  • or other frames


BE careful to note how your problem can be framed in various ways, consider how many of these perspectives are most important to discuss when leading toward your proposal, and consider how you might leave out or exclude other dimensions of your evaluation.  Excluding certain perspectives will be unavoidable when evaluating problems...



...but you may be able to negotiate various depths as you evaluate a problem.  

We can think of this as LAYERING (this is often thought through as moving from more global/universal issues to more particular/personal issues:

When revising your evalu-osal, make sure you are framing and layering the problem in ways that lead to your proposal.  You may want to examine the problem from several dimensions, such as:

  • the problem's connection to global trends,
  • the problem from the municipal level (local politics, histories...),
  • from a neighborhood or regional dimension,
  • from the mean streets,
  • or from a particular/personal/human dimensions.
