    • AI has proven to be a powerful assistant for professional evaluators. However, it is essential to recognize AI as an assistant rather than a standalone solution. Some AI users tend to overly rely on it without applying critical thinking and human judgment, leading to subpar results. When used appropriately, AI can greatly enhance the evaluation process by automating tasks, analyzing large volumes of data, and providing valuable insights. It can assist evaluators in data collection, organization, analysis, and visualization, saving time and improving efficiency. AI's capabilities in text analysis and predictive analytics enable evaluators to uncover patterns, sentiments, and trends, supporting more accurate recommendations and decision-making. Nevertheless, it is crucial for evaluators to exercise caution and maintain a balanced approach. Human expertise, critical thinking, and contextual understanding are still vital in interpreting AI-generated insights and ensuring their validity. Evaluators must filter and validate AI-generated outputs, considering the limitations and potential biases of the algorithms.

    • Engaging stakeholders begins at a program's earliest stages (conception) and continues through closure (and evaluation). This should serve as a key communication indicator. Evaluators should broadly involve relevant stakeholders through an effective communication process to ensure precise and useful feedback.

      Evaluators should present their findings clearly and provide actionable recommendations. A clear and compelling presentation of findings coupled with targeted recommendations tailored for different stakeholder groups can maximize the potential for evaluation insights to drive meaningful action.
      Following the completion of an evaluation report, stakeholders should be informed of the findings in their own language and given an opportunity to provide final feedback.
