3. Read chapter 8 in your book: Evaluation Biases and Communicating the Results.
Evaluation bias is something every evaluator needs to be aware of, but is is especially important if you are evaluating in your own organization where your bias’ may be even stronger than in an organization with which you are unfamiliar.
How you communicate the results of your evaulation is arguably the most important step in an evaluation. It does not matter how good of a job you did in gathering and analyzing your data, if you can not communicate it effectively and move people (or get commitment) to action. In my experience managing evaluators in several organizations, communicating is the place where most evaluators fall short; largely because they do not give communicating the results the attention it deserves.
4. Read chapter 9 in your book: A Final Thought.
Six short pages that talk about the link between design and evaluation, demonstrating value to your clients/supervisors/administration, the role individual and organizational readiness plays in evaluation.
Read the article on After-Action Review. After-Action Review (AAR) is a formative and summative evaluation method pioneered by the U.S. Army, with potential use for our classes and workplace projects.

What are your bias challenges as an evaluator? How can you overcome them/minimize the bias?
