Welcome to Government Eval TIG Week by Steven Lize and Chris Voegeli

Hi everyone, we are Steven Lize and Chris Voegeli. We are the chair and the past chair of the Government Evaluation TIG. This week is sponsored by the Government Evaluation TIG, and we have some great posts for you this week. The topics include the use of the User Experience Questionnaire (UEQ) to fulfill OMB requirements by Allison Watson, Peyton Holzworth, and Sara Wolicki, accountability as relational accountability by Steven Lize, and lessons learned from evaluating learning at the Joint Special Operations University by Beth Fidermutz. 

As many of us return from Evaluation 2022 in New Orleans, we are reflecting on how to improve the field of evaluation and the world through authentic collaboration, shared learning, and common interests. Government evaluators continue to make great strides in achieving these goals, and we look forward to hearing about the experiences and lessons learned they have gained along the way.

Our contributions this week highlight a wide range of experiences and approaches we take to assess publicly funded programs. We hope these posts offer useful lessons learned and resources to add to your toolbox.  

Below are several resources created by government agencies that can be of help to any evaluator:
