Intended learning outcomes
Students who have completed the Graduate Certificate in Evaluation should be able to:
- demonstrate knowledge and understanding of evaluation theory and practice;
- apply understandings of evaluation theory and methods to a range of practical settings; and
- demonstrate awareness of professional responsibilities and ethical principles that should characterise leaders in the evaluation field.
Graduates will have begun to develop evidence- and practice-based knowledge of evaluation and research that applies across disciplines. They will demonstrate a basic level of skill designing and conducting evaluation and research activities, and communicating with clients and stakeholders. Graduates will have begun to develop as critical and creative thinkers, with an aptitude for continued self-directed learning.
Graduates will be prepared to contribute meaningfully to evaluation thinking and practice in their professional and community contexts. They will understand the existence of multiple sets of values, how those affect the task of evaluation, and how to make the values conversation an explicit component of evaluation work.
Integrity and Self-Awareness
Graduates will be aware of existing professional standards and competencies for evaluators. They will understand the importance of critically reflecting on their evaluation practice and have set the foundation for a strong sense of intellectual integrity regarding evaluation.
