What constitutes a culture of evaluation? As part of my Masters of Adult Education program and research requirement, I delved into this question starting in 2017. The research project resulted in an appreciative-inquiry case study of an organization’s practices as measured through John Mayne’s proposed framework for a culture of evaluation. The research findings, while congruent with Mayne’s framework, revealed some interesting elements that have not been fully examined in the evaluation literature for their important role. Using an adult education constructivist perspective, I will discuss these elements and their potential for developing an evaluating and learning organization.
