As a program evaluator, I teach, research, and apply analytic methods. I help people identify, understand, and assess problems and solutions. This way of knowing and working is threatened by “problems” and “solutions” that aren’t based on systematic and sound analysis, but are simply sound bites that stir emotion. We need evaluation capacity building more than ever! The more people understand and value analytic methods, the less acceptable fake news, fake problems, fake solutions, and alternative facts will be. It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Evaluation Capacity Building!
