Evaluation and evaluative thinking is systemic reflection about what is of importance and value.
For example, how well a peer support programme is doing, what its value is to various stakeholders, and if it is worth doing more of.
Evaluative thinking and practice requires understanding what quality and value mean for the stakeholders.
To assist with measuring quality and value The Toka Tū leadership group with the assistance of our expert advisors have developed an evaluation rubric workbook called “How Good is Good?” .
The How Good is Good Rubric is available for free and can be downloaded here .
The rubric offers a stepped approach that demonstrates what would be expected to be seen if a service is minimally effective (baseline) through to highly effective (the gold standard).To progress through this stepped approach the previous step needs to be met.
We encourage Peer Support Services to use this rubric and welcome your feedback on its usefulness.
